    find a Singer 401 or 403 at a thrift store. they're the best damn sewing machines in the world. they're a slant-needle type from the 70's. they are not portable, and usually come mounted in the table they came in. my mom bought my 401A (i still need to finish repairing the table, but the machine is in great shape) at the "recycletown" at our dump for $10. they are durable, dependable, great machines. most of them don't do fancy stitches (just straight and zigzag) but you can find pattern wheels for the 401A at thrift stores sometimes.
