    Wow! Extremely similar to my old 9410 and my mom's 6234 from 1990. I wonder if my leftover bobbins, 1/4" "Littlefoot" and acrylic insert for my Horn table would fit it. I purchased those separately, so I didn't hand them in when I traded my machine in, thinking my mom might use them. But I her better machines instead :) I've been looking for a home for them. PM me if you are interested.

    Wow that's really cheap for such a machine. I bought an old singer #368 with a cabinet for $10 at an estate sale in Ohio

    Does it have a slant needle? If it does, I may have some extra things that will go with it.

    Going there often is the answer. The only reason I go so much is
    that it is my husbands favorite pass time. Ha! I do find things a lot
    so I don't complain to much. Ha!

    I never see anything nearly that nice in the thrift stores around here. That is a serious bargain!

    Whenever I go to the local Goodwill or any thrift shop I very rarely if ever find anything as great has some of you have. The only thing I've ever found was a large ziplock bag full of thread that turned out to be very bad as it broke after sewing 5-10 stitches! I ended up using it for basting my quilts with it -- even then it kept breaking. I eventually threw a lot of it in the garbage. I couldn't open the baggy as it was stappled shut. Maybe I should have done it anyway.

    Yes, I think we are about the only ones that have thrift stores with
    fabric,etc. I have heard from other people that they don't have
    fabric in their thrift store. Where is the one in Pell City. I could
    probably find it. Need to try that one out.
