Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I have a Golden Touch and Sew and a silverish one. They still work perfectly. Altho there are newer machines in my room, I can never see getting rid of either of them.
The automatic bobbin winder is a great idea - why didn't the other companies use that on all their machines, I don't know. You never have to take the bobbin out at all - just push a button and continue sewing!
I purchase a Golden Touch and sew singer in about 1973, and I can tell you it was the worst machine I have ever owned. I now belong to a Sr. Center and someone donated all the old singers same type and they are not good machines, hope you luck out with it. I now have baby locks and they sew rings around any singer. Maybe the 1930 singers are okay, but non of the touch and sew series seem to be any good. Most quilters and sewer don't have any singers except the featherweights. I hope you luck out for I know what my I think of them and I wouldn't giving one to any one except someone I hate.

yep that's the one, hurry up and put the stuff on ebay, I may buy the lot from you, if the repair shop fixes it!
No it has a weird bobbin you can unscrew it and the top is larger than the bottom. it selfwinds when it's empty I guess! or maybe I have to rewind it but it stays in the bobbin case!
I had a new Golden Touch and Sew by Singer back in 1968 and I still have it. It works great. I spent many years sewing on this machine since I didn't purchase my Bernina until 2008. Does yours have a gold front on one side and a drop in bobbin under the needle?
I got my Touch & Sew 600 for $20. I got it mostly because it could do a chain stitch. I have all the cams. I find most of my bobbins at a second time around craft store - usually still new in packages. i got a lot of White FR and FW bobbins that way, too - guess people are thinking - what are these things for?
I had the touch & sew when it first came out...Bought it at the "HomeShow"...It was the most beautiful looking macine, but that is where it ended...The bobbin was always a problem, adn it was in repair more than in use. Know how you feel.
I have 4 touch and sews sitting out in the garage, all with something wrong with them, They were given to me and when I have time I will check them out, but after reading all the posts, it isn't high on my list of things to do.
