|I have a Singer Touch and Sew from 1964 and recently spent many hours locating the instructions for setting it up to do the chain stitch (single thread). Singer has never printed the instructions. I now have the process with digital photos of the parts and how to put them together. Many of these machines are still working well and this can save you having to get a serger to do this task. It works with one thread through the needle, a special baseplate, a "shadow" bobbin part and an auxiliary threading part. All parts came with the original machine - but the instruction book does not include their use. e-mail me at PattyJackson@shaw.ca for instructions.
