ever drive by a yard sale and immediatley see quilty stuff??? i can spot a vintage singer at 50 mph :)
that's how i first laid eyes on her!! a singer 15-91. i've been looking for this particular model singer for years!! it's the first search i do when i visit craig's list!
i have one already and needed (not wanted, mind you) another as an emergency backup. i was kindda hoping to find a table top one so i had the option of portability.
the 15-91 is gear driven and with the gear driven motor, it was expensive to produce so a limited run was manufactured. they are, IMHO, the best model of singer to piece on. mine will sew thru numerous layers of denium with perfect tension then to onto the delicate silk without skipping a beat. these machines are work horses!
then a good spit polish with car wax, and wha-lah, as good as new!
now to find the time to thread her up and see how she stitches!!!
