    I belong to several different SM lists, but have been hanging out here because I'm looking for a more "informal" atmosphere. (I must admit that I also "feed" off the excitement of those new to collecting!) This is a hobby for me, one I've shared with family and friends and one that has been a wonderful diversion through some really rough times, but is certainly not the most important thing in my life.
    So--entertain me some more! I love hearing about all of your "new" machines!
    What's CRS? Is this something we all probably have - as in sewing machine addiction, or time changed and I have no brain cells this week "itis"??
    She means can't remember stuff or as we say in the army Can't remember sh......! It is a sickness we get when our children think we are old. :lol: Glenn

    Thanks Grandmother23. She is a little diva. My wife has bought her as many clothes as she has. :lol: Glenn
    She is adorable!! I love dogs and have 5 of them--golden retrievers and labs. I would love to have a little dog but the other dogs might eat it :shock:

    Congratulations, I think you are the current queen of machine shopping. Great job. I want to go with you next time. :D If only you were closer.
    Lisa I would have to argue that point, I know you too well and have seen photos of your garage! But she would give you a good run for your money I will say that! :-P

    I have no way of dating a Necchi so hopefully we can find someone on here that might know where to start to look!

    Very true Glenn, I have been looking on the Net and found some interesting sites about old tools. I have a good lead on a New Rogers scroll saw. If you want, I can forward you the links for the sites I have found. Take care, Pat

    Chris,
    About a month ago I got a Necchi BU Mira sewing machine and desk cabinet on Freecycle. I'll post pictures maybe tomorrow. Mine was made in 1953 or 1954.
    Join the Necchi sewing machine club Yahoo group and there is a lot of info on there. They also have a list of the members machines and have some dates with them. There are some manuals to download also if you don't have one.
    What models do you have?

    I tried the white vinagar and was quite pleased with the results. I soaked my old feet in it for about 15 minutes and it made a big difference. Kathie

    Anyone in the Boston, MA area looking for a Singer 201??? For $20.00 :shock: :shock: :shock:

    Check out this CL listing....I'm pretty sure that is a 201 under all of that dirt and grime:
