    Not sure what to do! I have an opportunitiy to buy an 1911 Red Eye Singer treadle! A real beauty, with loads of attachments. I already have 7 machines, not including my little "sweet pea". My dh will croak! We have talked about down sizing, can't be doing it this way. Oh what to do,what to do!!!

    I have been more sorry about things that I did not buy than the things that I did buy. I can still remember things that I "passed" by at garage sales, or auctions or antique stores. You can always sell something that you have if need be, to buy something new.

    thanks! I sold my old 1886 MW treadle a few years ago when we moved. I have kicked myself every since! I sold several antique pieces and told my dh I am not selling anymore! I like old things and he doesn't! We will see!

    No opinion on what you do.
    It is a beautiful machine.
