    I bought two machines this week

    I was looking some Elna Grasshoppers but was not to certain. Then i tried out a Singer Slant-o-matic 500 model. It sews really nice. I also picked up a Brother Festival 451. It reminds me of the plastic flamingos. It is all metal, sews great straight and zigzag stitches. It will go to my daughter in law who wants to learn to sew.

    Here are some pictures:

    Congrats! You're going to love that Rocketeer, and that pink machine is pretty!
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    I recently saw a slant- o- matic with a nice cabinet for $5! But, what to do with it is my problem, so I left it for someone else.

    I'm so jealous of your Rocketeer. That's on my "to get" list. That pink Brother is so cool looking.

    Wow, that pink Brother really is pink! Fun machines, both of them.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    Love the pink! I hope to eventually have either a 401 or a Rocketeer. Nice finds.

    Great machines. You'll enjoy them both. I saw an all metal Brother in the wild this weekend, but decided not to buy it. Too many projects already and no time to do any of them. :-(
