    This is Tillie. I believe she's a clone from the look of her. She's a Kenmore. Tillie is a rescue machine. My son saved her when she was on her way to a dumpster. She likes her new home and gives me trouble-free sewing pleasure.

    Miriam, I've been trying to PM you back but the board won't cooperate. I've tried twice to no avail so I'll try again later.

    Well darn. Photos won't upload, and spent over 15 minutes trying, so can't edit original. More bugs to work on.

    My Riccar 310B is a 15 clone. Love the pea soup green! It always reminds me of Grandad's old Chevy.

    I have one like valleyquiltermo. Mine is a 15-91 named Fusi. Found her at a garage sale. Love to sew with her, but she is heavy -- like me!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    RANT WARNING....
    You know whether it is free, $15, $30 or $150 and all slicked up and in good working condition with new wiring doesn't really matter - some of you would pay a whole bunch more money for a brand new machine that won't hold up near as well as one of these. Just the fact that they are still around and in working order should tell you a lot. These are environmentally friendly - not going to a land fill in a couple years. I bet if you adjust for inflation people were spending a whole lot more money for them when they were new. I've not seen real many free or $15 machines in pristine condition. I've seen some real nice worked over machines for $150 or less - what a bargain - a worked over machine for $150. You can't buy a $15 machine and take it anywhere and have it worked over. End of Rant

    Here is a picture of my model 15 clone. I bought it because of the color. I have another one almost like this one that is a butter cream color. I hope the picture comes through--it failed the last 2 times I've tried.

    Nope....it didn't work

    This new format wants you to resize your picture - I couldn't do it either.
