    I thought the New Family was a 12.

    "Mid century modern nightstand"
    http://kansascity.craigslist.org/fuo/4387181575.html

    Seems like a sewing cabinet would be a little tall to be used as a night stand.

    Why not just sell them as sewing cabinets? Why are people afraid of listing them as such?

    Not every body sews but everybody has a bed?

    This appeared on a search because of a sewing machine listed under other items for sale:

    https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nby/for/4373869313.html

    "found in an abandoned storage unit."

    Seriously? You just don't know where that's been...

    As much as I like antique, vintage, and even used items some things are better bought new.

    Is the New Family machine really a Singer or and old company cashing in on Singer's name at the time? I remember Singer's New Family being shorter with a large balance wheel.

    Wonder why it is a 'must see' - I was thinking they could get a patent on UGLY.
