Threading a Singer 66
The most common Singer I run across is the 66, from treadle to case to cabinet. I think when they were new they were cheaper than the 15's... But let me tell you they can be a work horse. Not only do I piece quilts on mine but use for all my utility sewing. The best thing I like about her is the ability to go tick tick tick... she will sew just as slow as can be which is great when teaching a child how to sew. It will let them sew as slow as needed till they master the machine a bit more.
I especially love mine because not only does it sound like a rain stick when running but the cabinet it's in is just great, it has a built in pedal, makes me feel like I am playing an organ instead of running a sewing machine.
Another great thing is how darn easy they are to thread!
