I already posted this in the vintage machine shop thread, but I'm going to try it here as well.
After seeing Starlite/Jan's thrift store find I started looking for a machine like it. I found this on ebay. I probably paid too much for it, but it is my favorite color and it is PRISTINE. This one is a bit different from hers, but similar.
I know it is a Singer 15 "clone." It weighs about 4,728 pounds, it is quieter than anything else in the house, and it makes a beautiful straight stitch. (I'm hooked - I can't wait to piece my next quilt with this machine) Everything on the underside says "Brother," but the front says "Made in Japan." Can anyone tell me anything more about this machine?
