    I have 35-40 little machines in my sewing rm, just love them. I have 2 reference books I bought on little sewing machines so I am able to look them up as i find them. The 2 books are probably 10 years old. There are thousands of little different machines. Such fun to collect.

    Would love to see a picture of some of your little machines. Could you share the titles of the books? The little machines are so cute!

    I have the exact same machine! got it for Christmas when I was 6 yrs old and learned to sew on it. I used it till I was a teenager and moved up to a 'real machine'. I have the clamp and the case, but no manual. I'll be watching to find out where to buy needles, would love to use it to load quilts on the longarm!

    That is sew cute. Would love to have one just for the sewing room, (don't have a sewing room, so guess I won't be getting one). Hope you find what you need for it to work. I smile just looking at it. BrendaK

    There was a fabric store in Arlington WA some years back where the owner had a museum of old machines that also included children machines like yours. It was fun to look at them. I would like to get one but when I find one on Ebay, they go up way too fast! You got a good price.
    She who dies with the most fabric didn't sew fast enough!

    I have the same one which I bought at an antique shop for 35.00. It's a little quirky, sometimes it sews and sometimes it doesn't. I keep it for show because it's cute and I like it. The little bit of information I have been able to get, it uses a Singer size one needle although I have tried other sizes just fine.
