    Today was the last yard sale for the season. She had it marked $15, but said I could have it for $10. It's missing a few parts but came with some accessories, most of which I don't have a clue what they are. I'll post separate pictures later of each one, so maybe someone can tell me what they are.

    Nice, and you can't beat the price!! :)

    The attachments from top left:

    Ruffler, ruffler, NO IDEA! :lol:
    Shirring plate, adjustable hemmer, looks like a braider?, a bobbin holder out of a puzzlebox, seam guide.
    the fan shaped thing is also out of a puzzlebox, held the tools, binding attachments, and a foot holder for a puzzlebox(?)

    Charlee-I did know the ruffler and the buttonholer. Thanks for the other, I did think one was some kind of guide, but didn't have a clue as to the rest. How do you use them/attach them?

    Glenn-what is the back clamp attachment?

    I have my mother in law's machine and table. We use the table as an entrance piece, but I've never even thought to use the machine. It weighs a ton and I don't have any accessories. But once I get my new sewing room going, I will see what I can do. You have encouraged me.

    WOW. It is just beautiful. I wouldn't care if it never sewed another stitch. It's lovely to look at!

    NO IDEA = Buttonholer (I think!)

    Wow, a red eye, and a real beauty at that!!!! Congratulations! I have all those assorted accessories except for that big one. Can't wait to have someone explain exactly what it is. What a wonderful price too-enjoy it.

    Oh my gosh, I just went to Craigslist and some idiot (oh I mean really optimistic person) has a red eye listed for $600.00. Says he has to sell it to raise money for taxes...lol I wish him alot of luck...lol
    Oh forgot to mention there is another red eye offered a few adds ahead of his that they only want $500.00 for.
    I need to move to a cheaper area.
