    OK...I'm really not much impressed with the looks!! I'm kinda disappointed. Didn't they go out and ask the vintage lovers for advice? :shock:
    That is very UNattractive and a total loss for quilters since that harp area is so tiny. What were they thinking? No thank you - I would have absolutely no use for one of those!

    Well, I am not afraid to be in the minority. I like the anniversary machine. Hopefully the price will get better, if enough people don't like it. I know I can buy a lot of vintage machines for $500, so it will have to come way down for me to think about it, but I do think I like it.

    "These are working sewing machines with 24 stitches and a one step button hole. Specs will be published next week."

    Sew, what does that fancy smancy plastic machine do that my Singer 401 doesn't do? I have a button hole maker for mine - works beautifully.

    Okay I can see now that you all can not see what I am seeing with the machine and I hope that when it is out on the floor for everyone to play with that they will be able to catch the subtle things that make this quite the nice machine. Take some time and really study it and you will know why I want to buy a couple........... And yes this machine will be sought after like the Centennial in a few years.

    Billy ,
    Please tell me what you see in this machine? The current crop of Singers aren't living up to what the Singer name used to mean.
    QUALITY! Reliability and long lasting

    I think so too. I wish my transmission had not picked now to get a $2000+ repair bill. I can only hope for a better price. I think it has an edge to it and a touch of retro as well. I can't wait to see one in person.
