My beloved Brother sewing machine is getting to the point where it needs a new tire. After 60+ years, it's probably time, but I can't really bring myself to put a black one on it. I know I probably won't be able to find a turquoise one to match the original, but has anyone seen any white or cream colored ones? I've checked my other machines, but even the Pink Atlas has a black one on it...

The current one still winds, but it has developed a flat spot that makes it a little fussy to start sometimes...If they last this long I can understand Brother not having a large backstock of them!

Any ideas of where to look other than eBay and the usual vendors?

2011-80.25+30+donated
2012 86.3 yds..
2013 21.0
