I have no idea if this is the right venue, but I'm desperately searching for an old sewing machine, a Morse Fotomatic IV 4400. I lost it in 2000 in Phoenix, Arizona, when my then husband didn't pay our storage bill. It was my mother's and the one on which I learned to sew. Not trying to buy it back, though I'm interested in that too. Just trying to see where it ended up and hope someone is enjoying it.
Thanks, Cheryl Hoefler

The best place to look for vintage sewing machines is the thrift store or ebay. Hope you find it.

Did you call the storage facility to see what they do with stuff when people don't pay the bill?

I'd try the Sewitsforsale at Yahoo groups with an ISO (in search of) and also sew-classic.com She deals in classic machines and since yours sounds unusual she might have been asked about it. Nice lady, in Texas, used to pop in here once in a while.
