    Rare hand held hmmm. I too would like to see it demonstrated. No cord.. no batteries.. no treadle...hmmm.. I remember when my Mom got her first sewing machine that had a button-hole attachment. She thought it was great and made me so many dresses just to use it

    I agree that the seller probably is 1) really ignorant or 2) hopes buyers are,

    How funny. I wonder where he got it and how he determined it was an antique sewing machine.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    I don't know if I should feel sorry for him because he really thinks he has something rare or to be angry because he is trying to scam someone ... for those of you who emailed him, please let us know if he responds!
