Tonite we donated to a great cause. On one of the 911 Flights that flew into the WTC were a group of employees from TJX (TJ Maxx Corp Office) here in MA. One of the husbands of the deceased and his new wife decided to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy in NY. They are holding a huge garage sale this weekend at the local HS which was advertised heavily. When I read it in the local newspaper, I decided to drop off some items, one of which is a sofa from my living room. We recently converted my LR to my sewing room and had extra furniture in great condition. So we dropped it off tonite and on the way out sat an adorable sewing machine. At first I thought it was a featherweight. It is 3/4 size. So I bought it making a nice donation. It is in excellent condition and looks brand new. I still can't find any dust or dirt even on the attachments. It came with an adorable small cabinet, attachments and a button hole attachment. I checked the serial number and the two digit letters are JD which on the Singer site indicates 1954. It is stamped Simanco-made in Canada. I know it's not a featherweight, by the weight alone. Does anyone have any info on this era machine?
