Sewing Machine Review 12/29/13 7:44 PM
Singer - 1200 Dressmaker
Ever since GothDom's review here made me aware of this Singer model, I've been on the lookout. Yesterday I found one. The seller's mother, who died in 1985, was the original and only operator of this particular machine. Since her death, it sat beneath the stairs at her son's house, uncovered (as a d... more...
