My Husqvarna 2000 has arrived yesterday, in good condition thanks to the
fact that it had a tape with 'Handle with care - Glass' wrapped all around
it, I suspect. After unpacking it today I can at least confirm that it has
all the parts advertised. Really, it's like opening a time capsule from the
early 1960s, including newspaper cuttings with useful tips for sewing and
stuff. The manual is somewhat battered but not beyond repair, the 'Beachwear
with Husqvarna' brochure is there twice and contains some dot&cross paper
(or something similar).
The box for feet and parts is undamaged and holds all the feet one might
wish for. There are even 7 spools with it (I removed the prehistoric thread
from it, many colours on each spool), but I think I might look around for
more. Too bad, I had bought a heap of spools for the Singer and they won't
fit. Don't know where to get metal ones for the H. but for now the seven or
eight will sure do. One of the gadget wheels that make the fancy stitches
has lost its metal cover. Easily mended and glued, once I know which way it
goes back in.
The machine itself shows some sratches on the outside but seems so far in
good order. I haven't plugged it in so far, out of fear that I might break
something if I haven't studied the manual carefully beforehand. A somewhat
different system from what I know, but not bad at all, obviously somebody
has spent some time thinking on the design and all that, safety and stuff.
Gotta read and try on Sunday.
Anyway, I just had to share, I felt so good this afternoon when I unpacked
all these riches, and not at all like a looser mom that doesn't get anything
done. Well, hope is the last to die... ;-)
