    I'm doing the happy dance! This is a Singer 185K that I found on on Craigslist today and just had to bring her home! She needs a good cleaning and oiling, but seems to work fine, and is in pretty darn good shape for being over 50 years old. :-) SWEET!

    Nice machine. Love that she comes with her own case.

    Beautiful. I brought the same machine home yesterday from a yard sale. Mine was born Jan. 26 1959. They are great machines. Enjoy. Happy quilting. :)

    Love your new find! It is in such great condition!!
    I bought the green 185K a few weeks ago at a pawn shop for $20! Sews great. Does need a slide plate over the bobbin though. I just used one from one of my other vintages to test it out but will look for one for this machine.
