    I jokingly told my youngest son (a carpenter) that if he came across any old Singers being tossed out, to bring em home to me.... so he did. Yesterday he brought me one of his friend's mom's vintage sewing machine.... a Singer 15-91 (1953) in a #40 cabinet (Queen Anne).
    The friend's mom passed away late last summer. Of course I greedily asked my son who got her fabric stash... he just laughed at me. Turns out she didn't have any fabric stash... she inherited the machine from her mother and they both only used the machine to do alterations & clothing repair work.

    So now I have five machines: 1 Singer 15-91, 1 Featherweight, 1 Singer Quantum LE, and my 2 Janomes. (10K and 11K se).

    Never feel greedy. You are just a good caretaker for these beloved machines.

    I thought I was doing good when my son brought me a bag of filled bobbins, spools of thread and other odds and end from a friends mom who no longer sewed. Of course the bobbins don't fit my machine...

    I just took a photo.... sure needs to be cleaned because Dwayne's mom was a smoker and the machine smells.

    Could you send him to WV for a while to look for a treadle cabinet in good shape for me? I have two heads, a 127 which is in the bad cabinet I have and a 66 that is crying for a good cabinet for herself and I am crying to use her too.
