    I found this machine in one of the local thrift stores today. It's a Singer Touch and Sew 758 from the 1960s or 70s. It came with the original case, manual, feet and pattern knobs. It must have been very well cared for because it sews a perfect stitch. It didn't have a price tag on it, so I took it up to the manager and asked how much she would like for it. Her reply: "Does $29.00 sound fair?" SOLD!!! :-D

    I have one of these it used to belong to my mother she didn't have a manual for it because she bought it at a yard sale I think so I went on the sight and paid 15 dollars for one.

    Actually, no I didn't. Believe it or not, I "had a feeling" it was a good machine. It looked well taken care of and had everything with it, so I took a chance. I'm sure glad I did.
