    I find a listing on CL, next town over, for a 15-90 and an elec. 201, $50 for both or $30 each. I'm emailing her for both while doing the dance of joy only to find out that the 201 is spoken for already =:( I bring the 15 home with cabinet and chair, and realize she's exactly one month younger than DH, so I say "You should name her"... Miss Shilah (??) was born 12/20/1946. She was pretty clean but when I spread the GoJo, a yellow brown came up. I guess she hung out with a smoking crowd. She needs to be rewired which DH can do and she's missing a bobbin thingy, bobbins and a needle. I someone can help me with purchasing these things, I'd appreciate it. I wanted to post this on the vintage section, but there's no file attachment for the pictures.

    Billy (Lostn51) may have parts. You can post in the vintage sewing shop - just reply and post your picture and questions or cut and paste this thread. There are 750+ pages, but it's an active thread. There are others there with some parts available, too.

    BTW, you new 'Old Gal' is very nice. I have a 128, but I'd like a full size one.

    She is a pretty machine. Parts for the 15s are easy to come by. Get some Schmetz 15x1 needles at most places, and bobbins as well. I'm sure Billy can help you, too.
