    Anyone using "Webshot's" now called "Smile" has to pay for the privilege. I miss that site and hopefully a new home is found.

    Thank you Jon! Darn, what a great site that use to be for identifying White's and dating them! Treadleon has a limited amount of dating of the White, but nothing like we use to find on the Arachnesobsession site! It is a shame when something so informative is taken away from all the collector's. I only have one Rotary Electric Embossed Black Crinkle White machine from 1931.

    Modern Home come to think of it, your White is very similar to my White and mine is a Rotary Electric! Your machine is not the embossed style, but it sure looks similar.

    Tammy Jeann, beautiful machine and cabinet! Did you know, your Wilson Rotary is a White machine? Great job on the cabinet!

    I am missing that site also. Somewhere in my pile of papers I KNOW I printed off each and every page of the White dating information. Gotta find it. Or may have saved the pages on my other computer. Guess I gotta go on a search mission.

    Well everyone who is not following all the new 'threads' popping up here, I was inspired to try a vintage Singer buttonhole attachment for the first time yesterday. I have had a pair of size 1 jeans sitting around here since Thanksgiving. They had a broken zipper - a 2.5" zipper. I couln't find a heavy duty zipper that small, nor did I look forward to trying to put a zipper that size in a pair of jeans. The jeans belong to a 16 year old granddaughter who was hoping Gramama could fix. After reading how easy the buttonhole attachments are to use I decided to try to put a button in the place of the now ripped out zipper! Wow, was I amazed! I have several of those attachments, but had never tried to use one! I put the buttonhole attachment on my Singer 15-88 treadle, did a practice buttonhole using only the HC and walla - a perfect button hole! I will never go back to using my 'new' very expensive electric machines to try and put in button holes again! I just love love love that little buttonhole attachment!Name:  buttonhole attached.jpg

    Heehee, so totally agree! I only make my buttonholes using the vintage buttonholers, and I only put in zippers using my Singer 201 since I love that zipper foot ( works on FW and some other Singers too).

    We have quite a few machines that have built in button hole settings. Not one will make a button hole as good as the old Singer or Greist buttonholler attachments. I've collected quite a few different ones too.

    I have a bunch of those button hole makers - I would prefer those over anything else. They are so easy to use. I think I have one for Kenmore but I don't know how it works.

    Miriam,

    Does your Kenmore one use the little rectangle cams? I have three different versions of Kenmore button hollers.

    I think it might - we'll dig it out when you and Elaine come back.
