    It followed me home--Honest!! I stopped by Goodwill and they had nothing, as usual. The guy parked next to me was unloading his van full of stuff to donate to Goodwill. The first thing he pulled out was a two tone green cabinet. I asked if it was a sewing machine and he said yes, would I like it???? Well, I'd certainly like to see it. I took one look and said Yes ! He was thrilled, said his wife has had it two years and never did anything with it, so he was getting rid of it. I didn't even know the number until I got home to look it up. It is a 319W !!! Serial number W1669240. All the parts seem to be there, but only one cam. There are 3 bobbins and 3 needles. He was happy to be rid of it, and I was tickled "green". Are they collectable??? Much newer than what I am used to.

    When did they make these machines???

    No, it was for sale near me, but I like the one you got better (green on green). They were selling the black one in a nice cabinet for $80 and I have to say the ad was up a while. I think this machine is going to put off a lot of people, because it uses specialty (expensive) needles. I don't know what attachments or cams were with it.

    Wayyyy back I posted mine but here it is again. $1 at a yardsale. My singer man said it is a great machine, and one of the first one that automatically zigzagged, I think. Anyway, it is a cutie and I made a baby quilt like my avitar with it.
