This little, portable Mini-Sew machine was manufactured in Hong Kong as stated on its original box. Not sure of the exact year--- but it looks like it's from the 1960's. It comes with its original paperwork and box, although the box is a little stained/damaged from years gone by. Wouldn't this be a fun gift for a quilter, seamstress or crafter with a real added 'blast from the past'? Buyer to pay shipping and insurance.
