Why ABBE REPAIR?
We love old machines with real metal in them.
I personally sew on a Singer 99K. I love it. It's over 60 years old and still runs perfectly. I consider old, all metal sewing machines irreplaceable. These machines should still be sewing decades after the new plastic, computerized machines have been recycled. The new "Bargain" machines? There ought to be a law! If you need 1001 different stitches, ok, if all you do is a straight stitch go rugged, go old. Oh yea, they do silk too and can be very simple to operate.
If you require the button hole selection or a series of stretch stitches, many decorative stitches... computer driven machines may be for you. While adding an embroidery unit to it may seem amazing, the maintenance may be costly.
