    Old Commercials...

    Found this while I was looking for something to help Joe and Elaine with their cabinet problem this morning...

    All of them are amusing, but the Singer commercial starts about 7:18 minutes into the video....

    Wish I was on DSL or some other high speed internet service. I'll just have to pretend I see the commercials.

    Great viewing Charlee - ooh what lovely frocks!

    Did Mrs. Housewife wash her dishes with her petticoats?

    And why has the lady who keeps her coffee in the fridge got a man's voice?

    Muv, I think the times indicated that men do the voice overs... Men had more authority and were smarter than women. (At least we women let them think so! )

    Very interesting Charlee and in some places quite funny. It struck me funny that the husband in the last Singer commercial just sat there and let the cat claw up the arm of his chair. Her new Singer sewn decor looks like photos of my grandmother's living room in the 40s.

    Joe, I'm with you in not being able to see them. I'll send myself an e-mail with them and then try seeing them when we are at our daughter's home. They have high speed there. Maybe you can get Miriam to show them to you when you are at her home. Tell her that you need to see them before you help her with her machines. Ya, that's a little bit of blackmail, but it might work.

    The two Singer ads never showed the machines. Just the quick look in the center. They concentrated on the final product you could make. Now they would have shown close ups of the machine.

    That's true Jean, but from the glimpse I caught of them, they look to be 15-91s.

    Great entertainment - I love the clothes - those 3 daughters must be quick studies to be able to make such professional looking gowns with just a few Singer Sewing Center lessons. Oh yah....

    In the second Singer commercial, the saleswoman is sewing with a 15-91. I can't see enough of the machine in the 1st one.
