    My Latest Find....Singer 327 in a cabinet-1964 Model. Anyone else have one of these?

    I wasn't feeling well today, kicked back in the recliner. I got a call from a friend that knew I liked/wanted Singer sewing machines. So.....I told her I really didn't feel well but I appreciated her calling me. I got off the phone and kept thinking about it. I text my Mom....then said....Ahhhh! I can't take it anymore-I have to go see it. When I was on my way my Mom text me back and said my Dad was on his way there too! LOL!!! So, for me to stay with the machine. It runs beautifully-nice, quiet and awesome stitches. Does anyone else have one of these? Cabinet looks nice too. I looked it up and it's a 1964 model. (note: I did call the friend back and Thank her and let her know that I just had to go and look at it and got it)

    How fun and exciting. I hope you are feeling better. At least the machine purchase probably cheered you up. Peggy

    The 327 has a reputation for being noisy, clunky and not one of the most desirable vintage Singers. Just being honest, I don't own one, but that's what vintage owners say. They were built as a low end, Singer machine that only did straight stitch and zig zag at the time when other Singer machines had much more capabilities with cams. It's a cute machine regardless. I love the color.

    Really? Hummm, I like it. I'm an oddity anyway I suppose. I'm adding it to my Featherweight 221, My Singer 99K, Singer 128, 1946 Kenmore and a couple others. It's different than what I have is why I liked it. Thanks for letting me know though. I appreciate the comment.

    I for one think she's a sexy little beastie! What's not to love about a nice straight stitch??? Congrats on your cool find

    Thanks. I think she quite pretty. Not sure what to name her. Ethel-is my Featherweight, my 46' Kenmore is-Aunt Gwen, 1940's Singer is-Pretty, 1957 Singer 99K-Baby. (My Mom suggested Ol Blue)

    Lately quite a few people have been wanting a machine that just only does straight stitch and zig zag - if it runs quiet for you and sews through the layers you feed in it I think you should be proud. I just bought a pretty green one. I haven't tried it yet to see if it is quiet or a banger. My guess is it will be reasonably quiet.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
