Vintage (70's or 80's) solid wood upright Singer 380 sewing station cabinet & sewing machine. Leave the sewing machine (or crafts) hidden when not in use. Plug it form behind (has hole for wires) so you can just fold it down and start sewing or crafting!
Cabinet is made of heavy, solid wood. Very well-constructed. Comes in two stacking peices. The upper compartment stores the sewing machine and has lots of additional storage for notions, fabric, attachments, etc. It also has four long display racks for spools of thread. The sewing machine is raised and lowered easily and smoothly with one handle. The bottom compartment has storage as well..
This cabinet is extremely heavy. believe me, they don't make them like this anymore. I believe it (just the cabinet) sold new for $1400, many years ago.
The sewing machine is in perfect running condition. Everything works -- it's just back form being serviced by a Singer technician. It is a Touch-Tronic 2001 memory machine. Comes with the original manual. Here is what Singer had to say about it:
"-Exclusive Solid-state Electronic Sewing System. The model 2001 machine has an electronic "brain" that automatically programs your machine to sew any one of twenty-seven different functional and/or decorative stitches plus two typos of one-step buttonholes.
-Exclusive light Touch Fingertip Controls. They are the orange stitch pattern symbols on the front of the machine that light up when the machine is turned on. Simply touch the symbol of the stitch pattern you want -- the red indicator light comes on above the symbol -- and the machine is ready to sew. Any stitch is instantly available, at the touch of a finger.
-Exclusive Digital Fine Tuning. It allows you to modify the programmed stitch pattern to suit special fabrics and satisfy personal preferences.
The Pattern Repeat Button lets you sew one unit of a pattern, for original decorative touches. The Light Touch Fingertip Reverse Stitch for instant or continuous reverse. An extra-wide programmed setting for most stitch patterns. 2X (two-times) wich produces twice the programmed stitch length for pattern variation in decorative designs. Mirror Image, wich automatically reverses the stitch pattern image, allows for greater flexibility in stitch application. The Flip & Sew panel for both flat and in the round sewing. And the ease of push-botton bobbin winding. (You don't even have to remove the bobbin to refill it.)
The model 2001 machine also has such Singer advantages as the Soft-Touch Fabric Feed that will not injure even the most delicate fabrics. A variable speed Solid-state Control System, that enables you to maintain the same pressure on the speed controller as you sew through varying fabric thicknesses.
In addition, the model 2001 machine has these Singer design featrues -- a one-way needle-clamp that makes it impossible to put the needle in backwards, snap-on feet that are quickly removed and easily replaced, and easy-to-change needle plates secured by magnets."
I would be willing to sell the cabinet seperately for $100 less. Please contact me if you would like to purchase just the cabinet. I could deliver locally, for an extra charge. (225) 313-6862 or (225) 270-3555
