It is a 'Golden Panoramic' Singer buttonholer, which I believe is for the Singer Slant Shank models only.
(Someone please correct me if I am wrong  :D).

I thought someone with a Singer slanty might be interested.

It was me!!  :D Doing the Happy Dance!!  :)

Thank you so much for the heads up Madame Cholet!  I spotted this, just as I was leaving work yesterday, and put a cheeky bid on it.  To my amazement, I checked my messages last night, and I'd won it!

It will do perfectly for my 611g, and which is usually set up for buttonholes.  I'm also keeping my eyes peeled for a Touch and Sew, which is also a slant shank.

Once again, a big Thank You!!

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Well done Jessie (and Madame Cholet for spotting it)! We'll happy dance with you  0_0. Glad it went to someone who will use and appreciate it, and at such a bargain price!!!!!

I'm delighted Suzie.  The seller seems very good - it's already on its way to me!

I just need to step up the search for a Touch and Sew now:)

I must say that when I posted the link I was thinking of you, Jessie! 0_0  :vintage: :vintage:  :vintage: :vintage: :vintage::vintage: 0_0

I shall keep my ear to the ground for a Touch and Sew  :ninja:

I think it comes in a basic low shank version too. I did a bit of search for one when I discovered it's capable of larger buttonholes than most, but I never ended up with one. One or two versions that take plastic cams have extra large ones.

MC, I have to keep the plans for the Touch and Sew very quiet atm - other half is getting a bit twitchy around sewing machines....   But, if it's a real bargain, then how can I refuse?

I can always offer to re-home a couple of the other machines  ;)  - I promise  ;)

Yes Jessie, we believe you ;)

I think it comes in a basic low shank version too...

I went by the pics on the box, and the info. on Helen Howes site, as she has one for sale there, but wow! .. a version exists for a low shank too? I shall keep an eye out for one of those  :D

... I did a bit of search for one when I discovered it's capable of larger buttonholes than most, but I never ended up with one. One or two versions that take plastic cams have extra large ones.

.. it also has... (drum roll)... an eyelet cam!

I am working on a theory that lost sewing machines seek out their new owners, and not the other way round, especially after Leila May's magical and marvelous Featherweight find! I have one of those old Ikea room dividers... it has 16 square holes just big enough to slide a sewing machine in... I keep moving out 'stuff' and sliding in an extra sewing machine...  DH hardly notices...

You make me a bit unsure Madame Cholet, I have to do a  bit more search on the subject. I never actually had my hands on one, and I don't have any slant shank models.

Madame Cholet

Arrow I think you were right, a search turned up this Singer buttonholer in the US, described for 'vertical needle machines'. It is not a 'Golden Panoramic', but the cam style and quantity look very similar.

They likely came out around the same time? They look nice, maybe I should add one to my lot of attachments.

Well, my new buttonhole attachment arrived - and it's beautiful!  To be fair, it's very like the other one I have, which is the Professional, which says on the box, for slant shank and zig zag machines.

The new one, the Golden Panorama, has not got information on the box, but I believe (I may be wrong here - I was once:)), that the Golden Panorama is the 670g sewing machine.

I haven't had much chance to compare the two, just a few minutes this morning, and the only difference I can see, is the feed dog cover.

I'm going to investigate further, to see if it would be possible to use it on a low shank machine.

I love the other buttonholers I have, but this one takes the guesswork out of buttonholing, I just lift the flap, drop another template in, and away we go.
