RIP- Singer Ginger Sewing Machine

12/25-1973 to 10/01/2011 - Thanks mom.

The runner in pictured below in this display is what killed my machine. I was 3 inches from finishing it when it stopped working correctly. I had a little portable machine my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas one year and was able to finish the runner. A recent diagnosis from the repair shop says it would cost $250 to repair and I could get a new machine for that price that did as much and more. So….. the research/hunt is on. Something tells me it will cost MORE than $250, though.

Ohhhh Noooooo!!! My condolences on the loss of a reliable friend. The only problem with anything NEW is that it takes so long to find a comfort zone with it.

The runner looks so innocent, who would have thought it was capable of such a heinous crime ;)

They sure don't make them like they used to that's for sure so have fun with all of the choices.
Be always in stitches.

I grew up using my mother's Singer and loved it. When I went out on my own, I used to go home and use her Singer for my sewing needs. Eventually, I got my own machine, and I bought an entry-level Husqvarna. I loved it. Later, I traded it in for a Husqvarna with more features and functions, which I also love. I hope you find that right machine for you. Can you visit some sewing stores and test-sew some of their models?
