I have a 99k Singer in cabinet, I bought it last year. Poor thing hadn't been cleaned in years, just begged me to take it home! So I did, my dh cleaned her up and oiled her. He fixed anything that was broken or loose! She shines now, the only thing is I haven't sewn with her. I have a Singer 15 that is a real champ and two Janomes that I use all the time and a 301 on the way! I need a reason or two just to keep her, I don't want to be sorry!
