Fabienne Serriere, Engadget how-to writer and Netscape anchor, got herself a great vintage Singer 222K sewing machine. Fabienne says, “If you learned on a rock solid sewing machine and ever since have lamented the plastic creations that pass for sewing machines nowadays, you will understand why I needed this gadget so badly. A Singer Featherweight, reputed for solid forward and backstitch, can even outlive its owner. All this one needed was a new belt, some oil, a needle, and voila, a stalwart sewing machine for decades to come.” Link.
