    My word! That is pretty steep in my book.
    Too steep for my pocketbook, but I don't think it's unreasonable...considering that folks change out the bars on their 66's because they can't find the back clamps...
    Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. The back clamp attachments and items for the 66-1 are difficult to find.

    Be interesting watching this one. :)
    It's missing the quilter and the underbraider. I don't have the quilter for the 66, but I have the underbraider.

    Dang! I did think it was a little weird they didn't have after pictures. I would be angry too. I went back and flagged it.
    it's still there - I would be upset - even more upsetting it was from somebody on the Quilting Board...

    They are copyrighted TO YOU! as soon as you snap a pic its your pic and no one can use it with out your permission.
    My dad was a photographer and I am an artist I know all these rules.
    You do not have to file a copyright it happens as soon as you snap the pic.
    I would send them a cease and desist order and provide links to the fact that it is your pic. I would also contact craigslist.

    Not that you are losing out on anything but it is highly misleading and its wrong that they think they can get away with it
    That's really creepy to find a picture of your machine (in your house) in someones CL listing.

    The shuttles for the 127 are quite distinctive--I always think of them as "wasp-waisted".

    I spent time this afternoon cleaning up (or at least attempting to) some needles and shuttles from an old Boye case that had been somewhere damp. There weren't a lot of shuttles, but quite a few rusty needles. I thought it worth a shot to see if they could be cleaned. I've had these for probably 10 years, and finally decided it's either toss them out or clean them up. I wanted the case (the one with the wooden base for hand sewing needles, etc.) they came in, so these were all just extra anyway.

    The evaporust leaves the shuttles dark where it takes off the rust, but boy, does it do the job!!

    I have shuttles to get gone but I sure don't know what they are from.

    I just went and read this--I haven't seen it before, but they describe the 127 shuttle as "wasp-waist" as well. This might help me identify some of the shuttles I have lying around here. I wondered what the ones with holes went to. Thanks, Charlee!!

    Here's a Wiki page to help you decide! :)

    I felt so lucky that my 66-1 Lotus came with lots of back clamp attachments!!
    My 66-1 Red Eye also came with lots of back clamp attachments.

    Believe me, they're not that hard to find. They're out there somewhere!!
    I found nearly a full set this week. It's amazing what you can find when you clean your basement. I had put a whole box of machine parts away after clearing out Mom's house, and had simply forgotten. There was a set of back clampers, a Singercraft guide (that actually looks like fun) and two braiding feet, as well as numerous needle clamps screws and many, many interesting bits and pieces. For a while, Mom, my uncle and I all were hunting machines. He had a garage full--that's where I got my 431G, my full-case electric cabinet, and several other choice bits. He quit before Mom and I did though, and moved out of state.

    I should be in the basement working right now. . . .

    I appreciate those of you who have let me know that apparently photos are automatically copyrighted and I appreciate the support. I have been very creeped out over this, although I keep telling myself it is not personal and it's just a sewing machine. The sad part is that this is the first board I have ever joined or posted anything on because I have worried about publicly posting things, however this board is supportive and it seemed safe. For those of you who have encouraged me to complain to CL I am not sure if it is possible to accomplish that anonymously and so am hesitant to take this further, even though I know it is not right to let it go. Hopefully someone will buy the machine quickly--- it's a national/Eldredge badged machine and mine is a gem even if the machine for sale isn't. Please understand that I am not dismissing anyone's advice and I'm open to ideas if there is a way to stay anonymous.

    The thing is, they're committing fraud. They are NOT selling the machine that is pictured as they said, nor is the cabinet the same one the dog chewed up. They're trolling for suckers....and will use the information that they get from said suckers to do something unsavory.... Please complain to Craig's list!
    I don't think you have to worry about posting on this board...or the internet in general. You simply need to be alert to your business dealings, i.e., watch your bank accounts closely (if you purchase online) don't give your home address or phone number, meet in neutral places....resturants, stores, etc.
    This board is just as safe as the grocery store...if you are a people watcher, you can find out just as much there about people as you can here.

    It'd definitely be a good idea to notify Craigslist as fraud is still fraud anyway you look at it.

    At the easiest - flag it for removal.
    If it's posted again.. flag it for removal again.
    ...and again
    ...and again

    Eventually maybe they will get tired of re-posting.

    You can also go to an online email service - gmail/hotmail/etc and create an account without using any of your personal information.
    THEN contact the seller using that email account.
    Then maybe you can say,
    "Hey, I see you like my sewing machine. Although, I don't remember you taking a picture of it in my living room. Please use an honest photo as this one is under copy-write."
    ;)
