This was another of Diane's SMs (sewing machines). This, too, hurt a bit. I had to remind myself that (A) it wasn't mine, and (B) I have one! This one was from 1960, so fifty-one years young. No doubt, Singer's top of the line, and a machine never to be matched.
I do, however, have the very core of the collection I'm interested in: Singer Slant-O-Matics from the 301 to the 500A. I still need a 503A of my own, and I'm on the hunt!
Singers will be well represented at Mary's Space Craft Center crafting event in Half Moon Bay this coming weekend. I won't have the full contingent of vintage machines that I had there last week, but I'm thinking, in addition to my singers (301, 401A, 403A, 500A, 185J), the Brother Select-O-Matic, the Elna Grasshopper, the Morse 4300 (of course. It's being raffled off!)... What else? It remains to be seen. See you there? http://spacecraftcenter.com/
