    just because I "cant" doesn't mean someone shouldn't.

    I've been in conversation with this nice person and have gotten him down to $110... However, I found a machine at MizKaki's that I think would be better for me so I though I'd share with others.

    if you want to have me intro you to the gentleman at my price, PM me.

    That looks like the reproduction singers of the 70s to me. Something doesn't seem quite right about it.

    I have one, but it is still residing in California with my son and DIL. I hope to make the trip down there this spring to pick her up. That is one way to make room for more sewing machines, have relatives that are willing to take on the overflow.

    Iíve got one looking for a new home, and the nice solid wood cabinet that it came in, if you ever get down to southwestern Oklahoma. Several ladies have wanted the cabinet for their Singers, but a Singer wonít fit in it, so Iíll probably have it for a while. I need to get a photo of the cabinet, but hereís a photo of the head.

    Yeah I wish I could get rid of one, too, CD. Here is mine. Still has the tags from when it was new... Weighs in at about 11 lbs. - case weighs more than that... I think there is a pretty cabinet around it might fit - nothing else does...

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

    If I found a featherweight at the right price, I would buy it. I may have to break down and get one anyway. I certainly shouldn't buy another machine of any kind or age as I have more than I can use. Yet, I love them all! I love love love my vintage machines!!! Just don't have a FW yet.

    I want to get my Singer Genie back from my sister. I learned how to sew on that machine and she doesn't use it. I also think it would be cool to have a rotary machine of some sort. I have three boxes of attachments for those and nothing to put them with.

    I would still like a Singer 99 with a hand crank and a Singer 201 treadle.

    I am wishing for a knee lift for my new Bernina 640-2 Favorit machine. I'm used to using an industrial straight sewer so it's the only down-side... it's a bit like using a professional steam iron. Once you've used one, it's impossible to go back.

    I've also got a Singer 328 that can be treadled, so I'd love an amazing table/treadle to come along and inspire me to get off the grid. Unlike the older black Singer heads, the 328 looks like a 50's jukebox. Not sure what kind of table would suit, so I'll be on the hunt for just the thing

    Every one I see. My original 1941 15, aka Sarah, needs a new motor. I love the 201 but Belle doesn't sing like the 15 does. The two Redeyes need cabinets. The 15-91 needs a bobbin case. The 301 is ok but its not love. The White and New Home treadles serve to hold up a cutting mat and ironing center. The White in the octagonal cabinet needs major rewiring. The 1925 handcrank 66 is so much fun, gotta get that bobbin winder working. Great Granny's Ruby is really just a keepsake, bless her heart. Couldn't live without the modern serger. Myrtle, the world's greatest New Home 556 needs brushes for her motor, Molly, 1970ish winds bobbins for everybody and operates that 70 year old buttonholer just fine. Ginnie is a 1970ish singer 5525 backs up Molly.

    I want funds and time to get everyone working. I should probably stop piecing and quilting long enough to get everyone in working order.

    I want the Pfaff 130 my sister got for pennies, but she won't even order a power cord for her.
    Life is made up of bits and pieces. You won't know how it'll turn out till its done.
