I'm still in shock. These machines are almost brand new. Not hardly a scratch or a speck of dust. The cases are also in excellent condition. All the machines need is a servicing and oiling of course. I feel like it's Christmas!!!!

    One of your machines (probably the 1950) is a centennial model. Singer celebrated their centennial (1850-1950) by putting special centennial badges on their machines from about 1950-1952, or as long as the badge supply lasted! Take a closer look at the badges on your machines. The blue one is the centennial. I have a model 201 that's a centennial.

    Good idea Colleen. I picked out a quilt I'm going to make them. They are huge into camping and I found some adorable camper theme fabric so I'll take a pic of the quilt when I'm done with it. Also, I'm making her a shawl for her to wear around her shoulders on those chilly evenings when they are sitting outside the camper with their friends at the campsite. Will share that pic when completed too.

    I'm still in shock at how generous they were to give the machines to me for nothing! They really are very sweet and I'm so happy we are neighbors!
