I have a 1961 Singer slant-needle that uses disks for decorative stitches; a
few years ago, I was in one of the local Singer shops picking out my Koala
cabinets, and on the shelf near the register, there was a basket loaded with
attachments, disks and all kinds of things for old Singers.  I found all but
one disk that day to finish out my collection.  Later a sewing friend from
this group found the last one somewhere and mailed it to me; it was still in
the original red, white & green box, too.
So hey can usually be found, it does take patience in looking til you find
what you need/want.

Yes.  Older machine, but a good one will keep going under solid domestic
use for 50+ years.  If it's only had light use, it might outlive us all.  ;)

Oh yes, that would be something, just stuff the little darling into an
envelope and send her here... ;-) But seriously, does it all the Husqvarna
does? Done some research, Berninas might do... I'm dead sure you DH would be
only to glad to see them out of the house. However, right now I'm really
fidgety about that Husqvarna and resolved to bid for it. Give it a try at
least.

Do bid.  If you don't win it, and, when you come over again, I still
have a decent Bernina to go back with you, you'll be more than welcome
to it.  The Berninas I have don't do all those fancy stitches, but they
do a decent set of utility stitches, and to be honest, they are the ones
you'll use most.  The rest are just free frills.

You know, I totally agree with you that I won't need most of the stuff, but
you've infected me with your 'Stitched eyelets are so much nicer than horrid
metal grommets!' desease and if I ever get to sewing I'll definitely sew
something that needs eyelets (and I certainly won't stitch them by hand!)
;-) If I don't get the H. then I'll have to look for another machine that
can do that. I hope I get the H! No, I'm not obsessed... Perhaps I should
translate the 'How to pack and ship a sewing machine' article... Where's
that to be found again? ;-)

:-))  I know just what you mean about Miss Kate spreading her infection all
over the place.  I too look at her stuff and think about how I too could
incorporate something she's been doing into what I'm doing.  She'a a bad,
bad girl.

wishing we were as evil! ;-)

I think I've converted several people to stitched eyelets.  I hate to
see a beautifully executed Elizabethan gown ruined by Big Shiny Metal
Grommets!
