    It's a Singer model 66-1 (I think) with Redeye decals. It looks to be in great shape. You can get the date it was authorized for production here: http://ismacs.net/singer_sewing_mach...-database.html
    The serial number is at the base of the pillar.

    Here are a few more pictures. It doesn't work at present but belongs to my SIL. She was going to take it to GoodWill. I thought maybe some of you might have better advice. Will try to post a few more pictures. Name:  image.jpg

    You have a very nice looking 66-1. It most likely just needs cleaned, oiled and a new belt. Please don't let it go to Goodwill. It's not a particularly valuable machine as there were millions of them made and lots of them are still around but they are very good machines and still popular today.

    Just think how happy a collector would be if they found this at Good Will. I would donate to a thrift shop that doesn't make a profit myself. (Good Will is a for profit store)

    Now that is a good idea .... if you are not going to take it in and adopt it yourself.

    You're in Wisconsin; I'm in North Dakota, an hour from the MN border. I wish with all my heart I could meet you in the middle of Minnesota to purchase it from you. But I can't.

    Could you check with local quilt shops or quilting guilds to find someone that would love and use it as it was intended to be used?

    It is beautiful. Don't let them remove it from that wonderful cabinet. Don't let them paint the cabinet. Don't let them ruin the machine. I'm sure there are sewists that are aching to own a machine that nice.

    Do you know it' history?

    I wonder how much a moving company would charge to send it to Larimore, ND?
