I have been busy rescuing machines from the landfill. Not literally, but I have bought several who might have otherwise gone there recently!
I am now the proud owner of a Superba, a Passap, a BEST, an 8-button Brother, a Toyota, and a Singer. These were in an estate sale and none included manuals.
I also purchased a Home Profit circular sock machine a few months ago.
Before that I found a deal on a Brother portable machine with a folding, plastic bed. Lightweight but standard size machine. Only manual patterning.
I will be very busy learning the features of these machines. I won an e-Bay auction for the hardcopy Pattern Book for the 8-button machine, it arrived well-loved and I am happy to have it.
I hope to feature each of the machines in upcoming blog posts.
