I admit, I bought this machine specifically to pass along. It is a wonderful machine. It has straight stitch, zig zag, stretch stitches and, my favorite, three stitch zig zag. It does not have a built in button- holer. The machine is easy to thread and easy to clean. It is heavy duty, in as much as it is mostly metal and won't break easily. It has a free arm and is not terribly heavy. I wish I had more of these to matchup with new seamsters.
I also sold a Singer 66-16. One of my favorite machines. I had kept this one in the shop in a cabinet to make little bags for accessories. I got it out, just in case and it sold. WITH A CABINET. That is key. I have so many cabinets. It is in very nice condition. I have at least four Singer 66s. I don't need five. This one is such a nice "specimen" It pleases me that it moved out of the shop and into a home. No, I do not consider my machines my "kids" and I don't really re-home the machines. But I know that this will get some use. And that is what these machines are all about. Function and Beauty.
I also passed along the green Elna Supermatic. I know I will never sew with that machine and it is such a noisy thing. I replaced the friction wheel on it in the Ray White Class (see older posts) but it is still just so noisy. I don't love this machine, but thought it was just so classic retro. B. is a smart guy. He can figure it out and fix it. Maybe I have recruited some new members to the world of sewing machine repair.
