If you read any of my post, you know just how much I love the Singer 15-91! I love, love, love them. I just found a portable for a nice price. Appears to be in nice condition. Am checking on it! I am sure I need it even though I got 2 cabinet models and 2 301's and ummm a couple of others Not quite sure what my hubby will think. We will see here shortly when he gets off the ph. I firgue when we down size in the next 5-10 years I may not be able to bring all of my cabinet models with me (try stopping me) but that is my story for now! A girl needs a back up plan!
