Today I got my second sewing machine of the weekend. It's a Singer 27. I figured I could use it for parts for my dad's and my model 27s. The woman who sold it to me was very happy that it was going to be used and loved.
I'm going to give the iron base to my mom, since I already have a base in good shape. My dad might be interested in the cabinet, or I might take it. If I keep it I'm going to sand it and see if I can re-stain it. It's in rough shape right now.
I thought I'd regret getting another model 27, but the puzzle box alone makes this worth it. I can't wait to use the quilt attachment!
