    Singer 338 had to come home

    DH was out shopping with me today and waned to stop by a local thrift store. I said but there has been nothing in there lately. So I browsed quickly and he says to me you didnt even look at that sewing machine. I said WHAT? I went over and there she was, a Singer 338 just wanting love. She seems nice and smooth and has all of her zig zag attachments along with others. Even has her original owners manual. She came in a newer plastic case and I cant wait to get her bottom off, clean her and oil her and try her out. Tag said she works, hope so, cant see why not for she turns smoothly and evenly, and has no neglect I can see. Just had to share my wonderful find, and how sweet my DH is for telling me buy it dont leave it here, and even paid for her, $15.00. I didnt have a Singer in the green series so I said well I dont have this colour and thanx to the quilting board i have heard great stories about the 338. So I hope so

    NICE!! That one's prettier than the 457 I just brought home... difference being, I'm trying to figure out how to break it to my spousal unit that "Yes, Dear. I brought home another one!"
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Oh but Charlee you just have to say it was such a bargain and that there was no way you could let it go to the scrap heap. It did help today that he just bought a new weed whacker and felt guilty about it. LOL

    Nice buy. And with all the goodies too. We got one just like it last Monday. Only ours came in a cabinet with only the #1 cam. That's OK we got a good deal too.

    What a nice find. I love the color.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Ok I opened Ophelia, yes that is her name, last night and went to clean her out and found her spotless inside, no lint, no rust and well lubed and oiled. So I went and fired her up and she sews beautiful, just as nice if not nicer then my Elna Pro Quilting Queen. Now to figure out whom is doing what, have a total of 15 machines now and more vintage then I want to admit. Did promise DH to sell a couple that i am not too thrilled with..

    Envy is seeping from my veins! I have been collecting older machines. My original purpose was to find some that I could use for teaching folks in unfortunate situations. Now I have collected a total of 10 machines, 9 Singers that could be labeled Vintage, made from 1909 to 1965 including 2 treadles. I got hooked! Since the ones in cabinets are a bit hard to transport when teaching, I just have to restrain myself and look for portables like you just found. Great find!!!!
