    By the way, cute new machines everybody. I think it is pretty neat to find the saved ones. I am going to have to find some new homes for some of mine....maybe. It is getting a little crowded in the sewing room.
    I found some Pfaff manuals on this site:

    If someone has already posted this, sorry to repeat.

    I did ask for a section for this thread--and was told no---that users have enough trouble navigating the board as it is????

    Serial #G7175576. Not terribly rusted like Helen, but pretty dirty. Decals look great under the gunk!
    Good for you!!! Persistence pays off!! :-) Now get to work!!

    I've seen it listed on eBay as a Singer 185J. Isn't it just too cute?? I don't know anything about them, though. And the camera is true...it's very green!

    I don't think Admin needs to be bothered about this right now. They are still having issues with some of the features not upgrading properly, and that's enough for them to be concerned with right now. Maybe they'll think about it since it has been mentioned a couple of times. Give them some time to think about it.

    Correction, it is sitting in my garage right now and today was 50% off day and I got it for $10 and some change!

    It is a 66-18 Centennial badge and is in pretty decent shape, but I am going to do a repaint on it and keep it for use in my studio. But she was allotted on June 13 1950.
