No, not really. Last week when I checked the Asheville CL in preparation for my return trip I saw a FW(Singer 221) listed. I figured if it was still listed when I got here I would check it out. Two days ago I saw that it was. I was encouraged and thought that maybe I would be able to fetch another machine while I was here. Today, the day I was ready to call about it, the listing was gone. Saved from myself. The photo was lousy and I don't honestly remember if it included the "box" but I think it did. The only reason I considered it AT ALL was because its commission date was 1953. I sort of thought it would be cool to have a sewing machine commissioned the same year that I was born. Oh yeah, I also had a dream that it included the penguin walking foot. DREAM ON.
Oh well. I have three FWs and we all know I don't need yet another sewing machine. In fact, I would like to unload about three more 201s, a 403A, a 404A, a 319W, a couple of 66s (Red heads) and some Kenmores. I have a Pfaff 230 I really need to service and get out the door along with a Riccar that I am willing to practically give away. There are definitely some boat anchors that I can scrap, as well.
"Scrap is 280 a ton, honey" I was informed.
But I can't stop looking. Is it a sickness?
