Yesterday, I had my annual physical and as usual, I was talking about sewing to one of the nurses. She told me her DGM passed away recently and she inherited 2 attachments for her old Singer machine.
One is a buttonhole attachment, with which I am familiar; the other is a
'pinker' with which I'm not familiar. She said, as a child in the 1940s and
visiting her DGM, she was totally fascinated with this attachment.
DGM was a professional, and would sew several items during the day, and in
the evening, when ready to stop, she'd attach the pinker and run all the
seams through at one sitting. The child was allowed to play with the
cuttings, which she loved to do. Now she can pink seams and allow her
little 3-YO DGD plays with the cuttings.
My question is, "Will one work on my 1961 slant-needle Singer?" If so,
where might I find one for sale, besides E-Bay and Amazon?
