Is it Wrong?

That the look of this machine makes me palpitate . . . just a little?

I've got a nice new(ish) Singer that runs well, does pretty much everything I ask of it.

I've got a Featherweight downstairs in the dining room that needs a going over but otherwise would probably do everything I asked of it.

So why does the combination of the two - nice new machine, loads of stitches, but that sleek black paint job and the fiddly gold bits - make me just a tiny bit dizzy?

For the curious, the acquisitive, here's a link to the Singer site.

Oh, that is just GORGEOUS. I don't sew enough to need a second sewing machine, but I'll be over in the corner here salivating.

I have a basic white singer thats unreliable but i keep it because i have many feet for it lol.I have 2 1950's singer 401A that i use and a brother serger that i use but i still dream of a black and gold singer.I explained to an incredulous hubby that it doesnt even have to work ,i just want to use it as "art" :)

I forgot to ask. Will you post a link to that? I may have to ask for it at some point for a gift.
