    Talking Just unearthed my mothers Singer Touch & Sew 758!

    I'm so excited. i knew where it was but hadnt had time to open her up and look at her closely. It's been a long time since i had seen it so i couldnt remember what the machine even looked like! she has everything for it! and im assuming the cams are perfect because she never ever used them. I'm hoping nothing is wrong with her and will be de-linting her, cleaning and oiling her tomorrow. This is the perfect solution for the fact that i was looking for a multipurpose machine... here it is!

    Wonderful, you already had a machine that will fill your needs. Best of all she has memories and you know her history.

    Yes I can't wait to give her some love and see how she runs and team the manual and stuff. My love is still with the antiques. The aesthetic just pleases me. But the fact that my mother has had this machine for about 40 years makes her special. my mother however is not mechanically inclined and admitted to me to never even having switched out the cams and testing any other stitch on the machine! The machine has been other wise well kept and always indoors so I feel it's safe to assume with a good cleaning and oiling that she'll be running soon! The bobbin is a dirty little piece at the moment. Haha. She'll need a name at some point. Maybe she will tell me as I work on her.

    that was how I felt when I got my granny's 201-2 restored. I am now quilting on the machine she used until she went blind. I also wish I had not given away my mom's pristine 403 with all books/attachments in 1995!

    Thanks everyone. I had a small but of time today and cleaned and oiled her today. I think I have her threaded correctly and will have to wind a bobbin to test if she sews. Here's crossing our fingers!
