    You've got a Sears! Well, at least a machine made by Sears to copy the Singer Model 27/127. I found out the information on Franklins when I was looking up my Minnesota.

    Janice are you saying you have a 1957 fw and want a 1951?

    Just asking as the year doesn't matter to me :)

    Billy, Yeah You! For a multitude of reasons. First off, you must be feeling better for this round. The motivation will hasten your healing. you're branching into new "terror"tory. Some of these things intimidate me. Those young things can operate technology. I'm still at the point where I want to get up and turn a knob to change the channel or volume on a TV. I have difficulty operating a simple flip phone. I admire those of you who can open their doors, metaphorically speaking, using the technology out there. What you've done so far looks good. I'll be following. For "moving" to such a romantic location.

    Suggestions? Well, keep a good sense of humor sprinkled in your comments. When writers block attacks, should that ever happen, just look out of your window, or on the floor. Whatever you see will "remind" you of something that happened years ago . . . happened to me on a regular basis, as I wrote about a memory, my thoughts would melt into a current day situation and the past was crumpled and tossed. That was on a typewriter - remember those? I envision a wonderful resource site with lots of pretty pictures.

    This is like being around for the birth of a baby, and waiting for the first words, walking, and developing. It's exciting for me to see you Blog.

    Thanks Miz Johnny, I will wait to see what Charlee finds, but I really appreciate your help, and will check out these if she doesn't find any originals.

    Thanks

    I haven't personally bought from either of these sites, but these are the ones that pop up on a brief search. I would search until I got the best price. (And of course, post it to all your friends!)

    Also, according to the ISMACS needle info, it's often possible to get a 15 x 1 to work in a machine originally designed for 20 x 1 just by cheating the needle down a bit.

    I've also noticed that there are places "out there" to buy the 206 x 13 needles by the hundred. I was under the impression they were being phased out?

    Did you get more than you need? I have been looking and looking for some for my Minnesota and have not been able to find them. I only have one needle and am so afraid of breaking it. If you do have a couple extra I would love to buy them.

    Thanks

    Bev, I was only able to get six needles, BUT!! I am going to go see the local SM "repair" guy (in quotes because his talents are questionable!!) and if I'm not mistaken, he's got a box or two in the back room...if he does, do you want me to get you some?

    I'm sitting here feeling blue - just missed this beauty by 10 minutes. I should have been dialing the 'phone instead of "taking care of business". Crap (literally)!

    Asking price ---------- $30!!!

    [I've got a few things there myself - even found a finger needle guard I was looking for to help protect my GD fingers when she's making her pillows![/quote]

    Do tell me about the Finger Guard. I'm teaching my 4yoGD to sew. Last time she was here, we sewed on my 15-91 and I was teaching her how to hold her fingers on the fabric so that they wouldn't get under the needle. Although, she's very aware of the needle so I think her mommy has told her about it because mommy sews too.

    BTW, she sewed together 4!! 6" strips!! She is so funny...I was showing her how to put right sides together so that the seam is on the wrong side. She kept saying "no no", see Nana, I want it to look like this when i finish" and she laid the right sides next to each other. I explained to her that is why we put the right sides together and then sew a seam. How come these little ones are sew smart???!!!!
