I love Craigslist, but it makes me do BAD things. There, I have made my confession.
I stalk Craigslist looking for machines to love, and to pass on. This one, I’m going to love. It reminds me of the one I was gifted last week. In fact, I thought it was going to be the same color (yellow and green), but it turned out to be crème and lavender. I’m not disappointed at all. A lady was selling it. It used to be her mother’s. It was in a cabinet, but we removed it. I don’t have room for cabinets.
It was dirty and needed a bath, but not too dirty. It looked like it was full of scratches, but I used scouring powder where I thought there were scratches, and it cleaned up pretty good. There are some nicks, but I dabbed on some ‘white out’ correction fluid (I use that for a LOT of things!) and smeared it around, then wiped the machine back off with a damp cloth. It diminished them by a bit.
Love those ‘emblems’ and ‘grill work’ pieces.
It came with a lot of accessories and cams for more decorative stitches, and a manual. I might have paid a bit more for it than I normally would, but it takes the same cams as the machine I got last week, and those cams are pretty hard to find. When you do find them, they are expensive, so I went with it.
There are 12 E cams in the accessory box. They are numbered 2-13, and each cam has a two sides, each side having a different decorative stitch. The cams are labels A and B, so 2A, 2B-13A, 13B. There is a cam in the machine. It is 1A, 1B. 1A is the zig zag cam, and 1B is the blind stitch cam. The machine has a stitch width dial, but it does nothing without the cam. The accessory box also has everything to make button holes, which I am SURE, I will never use.
