Remember this old machine? It's the one I rewired in April. I didn't have an owner's manual, didn't know the manufacturer, but a commenter happened to have me look into National Rotary sewing machines instead of White and I started to learn more about it. Eldredge Sewing Machine and National Sewing Machine made many of the machines sold under lesser known brand names, like this Scarbrough. They often made machines that were named for the stores that sold them and Scarbrough's was a big department store chain around here that started in San Antionio and was still in business when I moved here.
Coincidentally, after I learned more about the machine, I happened to be scrolling through ebay under Vintage Sewing Machines (I know, that's a very dangerous activity for a collector) and I saw this set of attachments. Just from the picture on the cover of the Instruction Manual, I happened to recognize my machine. Now I have a set of Griest attachments that actually went with this model machine. There were even the extra long needles that are almost impossible to find, two bobbins and the orginal certificate of warranty issued to the purchaser of whatever machine these were originally sold with. And, I confess. I did pull my machine out just now to make sure that the machine number on the certificate wasn't the number of my machine. That would have just been too coincidental, right?
I picked up the set of attachments below a couple of years ago when I first started collecting and didn't realize that they wouldn't fit my old singers. I wasn't familiar with griest attachments. I happened to pull out the old Scarbrough and saw that they would fit it, so that was coincidental. Now that I have the attachments for the Scarbrough, I can move this set to my new Kenmore, which is also Griest.
Hey, sometimes coincidence is where you create it.
Hope you're having a great Sunday. I'm out to work in the yard before it gets too hot. Lane
