    Touch and Sew Model 7??, 700 Series. Model number is on the base of the pillar, can't quite make it out.

    I doubt she has had it longer than most of us has been around. I have no idea as to the age.

    Didn't all the Touch and Sew models wind their bobbins inside the bobbin case? This one does not.

    Was able to take a magnifier to the photo and see that it says Model 717. Thanks for the help.

    Looks like the model is 717, whether this is considered a Touch n Sew I'm uncertain. As you've noted there are some differences.

    This model was sold to schools for Home Ec classes....I remember it because it's what I sewed on in school.

    I would imagine that the comment is directed toward a child/teen/young adult....

    That one is quite similar to the one that I bought in 1975 which was a model 774. I don't think mine was a touch and sew.

    I still have mine because I can't bear to get rid of it since it has so many memories of all the clothing that I made for my kids when they were growing up and my first quilts were also made on it. I learned to make button holes on it and it did a great job of it.

    The only problems that I had with it were tension issues and also that it used to "eat" small pieces of fabric when feeding them through. Since I have started collecting vintage machines and learning how sewing machines work I am sure that I can adjust the tension myself, now, and most likely the problem with the fabric being pulled into the little needle hole is that I never changed my needle for many years

    Here is a pic of the machine on this manual.
