    Those are great! What is that nifty looking attachment in the middle picture - the grey metal thread holder Thingy. It looks like it has metal pins/rods to set into something? And is that a Bernina walking foot? (inquiring minds need to know ;-) )

    Does that grey thingy have a number of any kind on it? By the way, nice buy--the attachments are worth that and more.

    I haven't a clue what the grey thingy is it has sewing machine needle in it and 4 things that look like they attach to the machine (slip down in) may be some out there can tell us what it is it is made of plastic that makes me think it is newer than the machine

    You've got some cool stuff. :)

    What model number is on the front of the Touch & Sew? That's a slant shank machine and it has a wind-in-place bobbin. Be careful buying bobbins for this one because there are two others that look VERY similar to the one this needs, and you can even fill them - but when you go to sew with them, you get a mess under the needle plate.

    The zipper foot looks like it might be for a slant shank - hard to tell for sure.

    The even feed foot will fit your 66 as long as your 66 is a side-clamping style. I don't see the vintage even feed feet for low shank nearly as often as I see the ones for slants, for some reason.

    You've also got a binder, edgestitcher and gathering foot.

    No clue as to the spool roller thingie. :)

    And it looks like you've got an original manual and a snap-on shank and a guide for a Singer Genie. You might want to list those on eBay - people who love their Genie's would probably buy this, as pretty and clean as it is.

    Have fun! :)

    I'm thinking the even feed might fit the slant needle (touch and sew). Is it possible to get a picture from a different angle on the spool thingy? Oh yeah, I have a Genie without a manual--I've copied one, but no original.

    That model of 66 is called a "Godzilla" and they are pretty neat. What a wonderful haul you made.

    Hi, can't really see the grey attachment properly but I think it looks like a tucking (doofy) to make little tucks instead of gathering. If it is, it makes a really pretty effect sort of like on a baby's dress when the yoke is attached it has little tucks instead of gathers. It that is right it fits on the screw on the needle bar and moves backward and forward in front of the needle and goes up and down to make the tucks. Was a long long looooonnnng time ago. Hope this is helpful.
    If this is not what I am thinking of then I don't have a clue.
    Sorry about that. Gleniveve.
