    ShopGoodwill.com Several Featherweights and 301s

    For those of you looking, there must have been a wave of cleaning out recently and donated to Goodwill. GL!

    I noticed this too. Several were from the Oregon Goodwill.

    Yes I know. I visit the Goodwill website all too often and see a lot of nice sewing machines. I always check the shipping costs to determine whether or not it is a good bargain or not. The sewing machines I have purchased have come to me very well packed. The only problem I have experienced is that often the carrying cases do not ship well and I sure wish Goodwill would have the knowledge to remove the spool pins or cushion them well before shipping. The spool pins have a way of bending or damaging the top cover of the cases during shipping.

    I got a 1950 Kenmore from that site. Also a 1913 Singer model 66 for $43 plus shipping. About $63 total. The singer has been polished completely by me and a man I know who works the sewing clinic at JoAnns tweaked it for me yesterday, oiled it, tweaked the bobbin. Boy! Does she purr. I can't wait to use her. Don't know her name yet...she hasn't told me
    have been happily divorced from the same guy for 39 years now! Yay!

    That's sad. If Bares hadn't wasted her money on a 301 that she bought from Lostn51 she could buy one. Instead she never got her machine nor did he refund her money.
