Nancy started this by reminding me that I had the monogrammers and slant needle attachments in the top of the closet from years ago from my disaster touch n sew lemon. I decided I wanted a rocateer and ordered a cabinet without the machine from the fellow that sent my queen ann cabinet so beautifully packed. It is a blond space age compact cabinet with the brass legs-still looking for the parklane stool that matches if anyone finds one someplace or has one to sell. I asked my retired singer guy for an opinion on slants and he preferred the 401 so a restored refurbed one is headed here. More later if I ever permit myself to read the vintage enablers posts here again. Lol! Now to figure out where I need another lamp table-am in the process of having a very well lit house, I may need to shop for another lamp at this rate.

Too funny! A cautionary tale of how the train heads off the tracks...!

Good luck with the lamp hunt. You might want to start buying lower wattage bulbs....

Better pick up a few more bulbs tomorrow when I am out and about-too funny, horse girl, hadn't thought of that. My dh never ceases to amaze me -thought I'd hear the yada yada about the 201 being the last collectible vintage coming here,where is the new lamp table residingetc. and thinking sooner or later he is going to have me a mental health appointment. Instead he asked if I could hem his new camo pants on it before hunting season rolls around. He knows me pretty well and how I needed it (ahem) to make use of 30 year old feet and attachments that were living in the top of a closet. I'd say he is a keeper.

I'd say you are the keeper. When I get handed projects like that, they tend to remain in a clump on the shelf while I finish the current quilt, start cutting out another Aloha shirt, make a little dress for the newest baby, cut out another quilt....

Pants are hemmed-didn't want the camos in the way when the slant o matic arrives. Lol! I would have hemmed a bunch more to avoid the where in the world are you putting this one speech which I figured was coming and he just laughed about the slant needle baby. I miscalculated the age of the attachments -they are 40 years old -time flies when having fun. Maybe if I'd do a quilt and get to sewing like you I'd get off the internet and quit buying vintage machine babies. Lol!

Yes, you are definitely in the early stages of SMAD. That's how I started...I thought it would be fun to own a Featherweight from the year I was born, since the one I had learned on got traded in for my Slant-O-Matic. That led to a little Singer collection...even got my DH involved refinishing a treadle machine cabinet. Later got hooked on the Viking Designers with a few used Bernies along the way. I thinned the flock when we moved but I soon learned that my computer could still log onto EBay and UPS could deliver to my new location as well. And exciting machines like the Ellisimo and Juki F600 keep popping up. And now look where I am... and considering a test drive on the new Pfaffs (since I traded a lovely 1471 when I was younger and didn't know better, I think it's appropriate to return to the fold, right?). In addition to my studio, now I have a little sewing classroom and at least those vintage machines are serving well. Good excuse. Really good.

Oh, there is no known cure for SMAD.
