Today I tried out a lot of vintage sewing machines. Some worked very well and others needed some work. I finally settled on a Singer 500a machine. It is a slant needle Machine and sews very well.
This machine will stay in my car so I can have a machine for on the go.
The second machine is a Brother Festival 451. It is a great machine for straight sewing and zigzag. It is a machine that was built to last. This machine I am getting for my daughter-in -law. Here is a picture of this bright pink machine.
