My DD and I were not looking for any more sewing machines. But we received a call from a friend of the person we bought a sphinx a couple of weeks ago. She had two machines she was interested in selling. She sent us a couple of photos and one looked like it was a Sphinx and the other one was big and industrial looking. The lady wanted $450.00 for both of them. So DD went to look at them, said it was more than they were worth. As DD was leaving the lady came out and tapped on her window and asked would she pay $250.00 for both. DD called me and said what do you think? I said go ahead and buy them, if anything the Sphinx could be a parts machine. Well she brought them home and the Sphinx is in better shape than the one my DS sent me and the one we had bought a couple of weeks ago.
The big machine is a 29-4, serial # G1183248, mfg bet 1908-1909?
The Singer Sphinx, serial #14816344, mfg abt 1893?
The 29-4 is still in the back of the truck waiting for some man muscle, it is one heavy machine.
We will be calling Singer tomorrow to get definite dates.
Is this like fabric, do we have to have a New Year's resolution, NO MORE MACHINES!!!?
