It'a Singer 15 clone machine. Do you think the paint job is original, or is it a custom job? Myself, I'm in love. Who wouldn't love a lavendar machine?

That makes two of us that are in love!!!!

Hmm. There is one on the 'net but it's hot pink and it also is in NZ. Can't get just that pic so I had to include all the pics in the Google search for Jasmine sewing machine:

Thank you for pointing out the pink one.



The seller of this one says she has had 11, but the seller of the purple one (lavender) says only 4 were imported to NZ.

Very interesting, I imagine they were imported from the UK.

Hmm. Wonder if the seller has any more lavendar ones? I get first dibs if she does!! Also wondering what shipping and all would be. I just love it. Have to remember to e-mail the seller tomorrow. Unless you feel like asking her if she has any lavendar ones :D. I'm too tired to do it tonight!

I would bet they were made in Japan, or somewhere in the Orient.

Wonder what the shipping charges to the US are? Given what I pay for patterns from Australia, probably way out of my budget!

Beautiful machines but I definitely need both hands for sewing. It is interesting to know there are many who uses these machines.

I doubt that many people are currently using these machines, but it is interesting that these ended up in NZ.

Would be interesting to know the story.
