I am currently learning to sew with a machine, for costumes/playa-wear. A widow friend had a 1961 Singer in her basement, and with a cleaning and oiling, it runs very well. I have not tried any other machines, but I am a "mechanical" type, and this seems like it is one of the better older models. Very utilitarian, basic, and solid. Cost? Zero. These are lurking in basements everywhere, some can be had for little or nothing. I bought and promptly sold 4 high-end Berninas, but never fired one up. That was in my pre-sewing era. I am an antique dealer by trade, so the old stuff is always the better stuff.
Dogs are the leaders of the planet. If you see two life forms, one of them’s making a poop, the other one’s carrying it for him, who would you assume is in charge?
