    Looks like Craigslist has a new format. At least the ads I've looked at this morning do. I don't like it and I hope it's a temporary thing!
    You can have any design you want. As long as it's loops!

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I would never flame over a assemblage like that. If Michael deMing can put his stuff in museums, then why not?

I'm so glad I bought it and my pocket book is very glad I parted it out.
    Well I went to see that machine today. It was part of an estate sale where there were 4 machines and a heck of a lot of fabric. Found out the story behind the 401A. It had been in a house that had had a fire. The machine sat in the house for months while it was waiting to be repaired (the house, not the machine) and it looks like it was very moist. The piggy snout was seized. The slide plate didn't, and the throat plate was permanently stuck. I borrowed a screw driver, all the while educating the sellers, and took a peek inside. There was white corrosion all over the lip of the machine. The hand wheel turned, but the horizontal shaft didn't. I left it there.

    On the way to meet a friend, I was driving past the Sally Ann, and heard a call. We've stopped checking the SA, because their prices are out to lunch ($35 for a buttonholer), so I almost ignored the summons and didn't stop.

    Found a Centennial 66 with a crinkle finish, in a Singer plastic case, same price as the buttonholer.

    Yeah, it's home with me.

    I would have gotten the piggy nose just for the piggy nose - but it would have had to be VERY cheap.

    At least that one looks like it is well done and not painted by a toddler.

    Just another chapter in the ongoing saga of growing old. Vintage?

    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.

    I don't know. If I went back, they might let it go pretty cheap. I told them everything I could about it. I just have a good working one here. I'm thinking though.... as for parts, I might be able to salvage the motor.... that's worth something, then I'd have the piggy nose too.

    80s is a vintage.... not a good one, but it's a vintage. Those Athena 2000s are popular with people though. With that cabinet, they may get it.

    I agree!

    What's older than 'vintage'? A 'relic'? Then I must be a 'relic'.

    The poster obviously cannot read as the box says Griest buttonholer. What a ridiculous price!!!

    I meant to behave......but there were too many other options

    Thank you both. I am going to see it at 10 this morning. The seller "overlooked" answering the question in my email as to whether or not it is working. The top of the cabinet looks bad. Guess I get to learn how to fix it!
