I was scrolling through the topics this morning and saw one titled "My first vintage machine" I got a giggle out of that because until recently the only machines I've been around are vintage. My mothers 1950s HOTHER, my wife's mid 70s Singer 538, etc.
Only recently did we barter into the Singer 3810 plastic wonder. It's in a bag somewhere on a shelf awaiting a new bobbin case and table. After that it will probably be rehomed. I am not overly impressed with it. It works but ..... no soul.
