    A friend gave me a Singer JC 665653. Does anybody know what it might be? TIA
    Also gave me an International Rotary w/manual and attachments. DH is in the process of cleaning them up.

    LOL I am I believe I am contacting the seller and I am supposed to be getting more photos of them sent to me. I might keep one or two of them but the rest will be serviced/repainted and sold off. I have a friend in the Cinci area that can hold them for me until I ca get up there to get them.

    Weedwoman, you need to post a picture so we can identify the Singer. The only thing the Singer site says is that JC is a 1948 machine.

    Wow, Charlee what a great score! That SewHandy is really pristine! What are you doing with leather that requires the awl? Those crocheted doillies, table clothes are beautiful. I use to crochet doillies with my Gram, although, she made the beautiful ones using those little tiny crochet hooks!

    Very nice machines... I need me some spotters out in the field for deals like those!! I also love the dark stain on this cabinet.

    Charlee - welcome back and your little 20 is soo cute. Wait a minute..we both have November birthdays!

    To those of you in Ontario or with friends nearby... I came across this link.

    Thanks Nancy!
    I make Mountain man style "medicine" bags and "possibles" bags with the leather...beadwork is almost as good as handsewing and handquilting for "brainless" activity! :) I can solve most of the world's problems while I'm beading or quilting! :lol:

    The one at the thrift store looks to be older than the link picture. It has a reverse knob, and looks like it would do zigzag (length and width adjustments) but not much else.

    Weedwoman, it also indicates the machine was made in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada.

    Justtrish, I wish I were up there! the two vikings pictured are like my youngest machine. My girls both have laid claim to it. Wish I could get them so there won't be a fight =:o

    Charlee, as usual, some wonderful finds! I'm glad it was a fun break for you.

    Charlee - your crocheted doilies are beautiful. I learned to crochet with a steel hook & bedspread weight thread when I was 18. I love finding crocheted items like that but sorta sad because the makers family didn't value them. I was given a bunch of doilies by a friend who got them from a friend. The friend who made them didn't have any family to leave them to. I will treasure them forever and after me, my daughter will.
