    MY 'BARN SALE' FIND!! Need help give "her" a name.

    Yesterday, we went to pick my husband's new suit (he outgrew his work suits since he retired), and we passed a barn sale sign at an old farm. We turned around and pulled in around buildings and fields and parked between rusty old farm "stuff". There was a huge barn set up like a professional seller, but old, dusty etc. (I complained to my DH - another "man sale").

    There were alot of pickers, grabbing old toys, tools, and such, so I went over to the china bits and pieces tables (around 10 of them), and found this little beauty. It is a singer sew handy, in the original box. I spoke to the farmer, it was his kid's machine, and I bought it - for $20!!!!

    The pickers gave me a nasty look as I proudly carried her to the truck. Now, I need help naming her. I was thinking of Dell (as in Farmer in the Dell). Any suggestions.

    Lucky you finding one so cheap. I was thinking you might want to name her Hannah (from the SewHandy label - Handy to Hannah).

    Wow! Nice find! Aren't you glad you stopped.If you want a feminine name, I think Adele or Adell would be nice. Like you said, farmer in A Dell or the singer Adele.Have you tried it out yet?

    What a find. It looks very well taken care of. I like Adele for her name. I think all sewing machines should have feminine names. JMHO

    Wow! She's in pristine condition! That's a lesson learned - you never know what you might find at a sale, even a "man sale."

    I will be looking for a manual, and a bobbin, and a needle screw. I will name her Adele, it was my mother's nick name (adeleine).

    She is just so cute!!!

    Barney - as in found it in a barn. I call my Singer Treadle my Jersey Girl since I drowe all the way to New Jersey to pick her up. My serger is Buzz Killer since it often drives me nuts when threading it.
    I've got a smile on my face, I've got four walls around me
    The sun in the sky, the water surrounds me
    I'll win now but sometimes I'll lose
    I've been battered, but I'll never bruise
