    You machine is beautiful. It is a class 15 Singer knock off ( made in Japan by chance?) so it will thread the same as a Singer 15-91.

    I must have been under a rock, I have never heard of that machine. Would fit in my little corner of the world downstairs as my DH calls me that every now and then. Lucky you!
