    I'm wondering if anyone has one of these (green colored perhaps?) old gems? Today I picked up a bag of what appeared to be random old presser feet at a garage sale, but came to discover it was most of the accessories for a Viking Automatic. The original owner's manual was also in the bag. I bought the bag of goodies because I was going to use the feet on my Featherweight (appears they will fit), but I want to know if anyone out there is in search of these accessories. Hate to break up a nearly complete set.

    Here's what I have.

    These were in the bag too. Aren't they pretty?

    Those accessories were just filthy when I bought them, but I cleaned them up and was so thrilled to find no rust on the feet. Wherever they were stored was dirty, but dry.

    Until I got home and looked beyond the jumble of old thread and needles and buttons, etc, I didn't know those feet were for a Viking. I just thought it was a odd lot of short shanked feet. I did try to prod the people into telling me more about where the items were from (hoping to uncover an old forgotten beauty, of course), but they were pretty tight lipped for some reason. My guess is that they probably bought them as part of an auction package. Sure wish the little green machine had been with them.

    I think I found someone on the board who is in need of them, so hopefully they will have a good home soon. :)

    I have that same package of needles. I only saved it because I thought the hairdos were neat.

    That's a wonderful offer, but I already sold them to another board member. I will keep my eye out for other feet if you would like me to. I rummage a lot. Thanks. :)

    Would you still happen to have the manual for the Viking Automatic?
