      You should be proud of this group. It is all that to use the current vernacular.

      What a Beautiful collection. I would love to build a collection and I know it would be close to impossible to find them all. Can you tell me why that Featherweight is the "Holy Grail”? Also where can I find a list of what are the most sought after collector singer machines? The Red S, Crinkle finish etc….

A list of Specialty badged sewing machines can be found on Tre’ Perry’s Facebook page under the tab labeled “FILES”. I also included a brief description of World Fairs that sewing companies displayed at…thanks again, J.C.
