    Well, I haven't been able to convince my DH that he needs to learn to quilt, but he has definitely developed a love for sewing machines, especially Japanese machines (since I got my Juki). It turns out he loves the futuristic designs of the Japanese machines from the 50's and 60's (at least at this point ;) ).
    He was so excited then, when he found this Domestic brand machine at a thrift shop yesterday (Domestic was from U.S., but this model 924 says "made in Japan"). It isn't in too bad shape, haven't tried to get it to run yet, but I am sure that is next 8-) .

    Do any of you have any of these machines?

    Thanks for looking.

    It looks an awful lot like a 50's Necchi-Elna that I got at an auction in a beautiful solid wood cabinet full of vintage supplies for $30, even got the owners manual and some attachments. It sews beautifully.

    Wow! You were so lucky! This didn't come with any attachments or manual (he only paid $2)...of course, I think DH just wants to play with it :lol:

    Send him to Billy in the Vintage Machine Cafe! Billy also loves the old Japanese machines, and knows everything about them! (Lostn51 is Billy's board name)
