Hi #HappyFriday all, this is an off topic post. I was desiring a vintage singer sewing machine for almost a year and realized that the rare black-gold embellished style is rare and pricey. I have great faith. My Staten Island sister #GretchenAnthony found one in Rochester, NY. This was for anyone who would actually use it and not sell it. I ended up with it. I am in love with this company. My reason for this desire is that the new computerized sewing machines are mainly plastic components and one usually has to mail it to be fixed. Because I have been sewing for over 40 years, I have had quite a few different machines. I have had a guy come to my house for over 20 years with no worries. He cannot fix the modern ones and he always had to order parts which meant waiting for it to come no machine. Anyway I got me a Singer 15-91 made in 1948 and I am in awe of the workmanship and quality of the stitches. This is a straight stitch that does zigzag, button holes, blind hem.
