    Can Anyone Tell Me About This Cabinet?

    This is the Touch and Sew I bought in the cabinet a couple days ago - I actually bought it BECAUSE of the cabinet...the sewing machine was a really fun bonus! In any case, I recognized it was a Queen Anne style but can't find it on ISMACS (not old enough?) website. I found two on Ebay but one was sold and there wasn't any info on the listing and the other doesn't really have any info either. What machine did these originally go with? I'm gonna guess the Touch and Sew didn't come in this...also does anyone know where I can find a picture of the stool that would match so I can get looking for one? Thanks! You guys are SERIOUSLY THE BEST!!!

    Singer cabinet #40, Queen Anne style. There are two #40 cabinets, one is the Queen Anne with the shaped legs, the other has straight legs.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Thank you Charlee - you realize you are like my personal old sewing machine hero right now right?

    Do the #40's come with a different front then? My has more of a 70's thing going on up front versus the one shown on ISMACS - I have two 15-91's in the straight leg version so I totally thought this was for something else.

    That is a super cool machine in a great cabinet. Have fun with her. I hope you are able to find a stool.

    Thanks!! I love it too - you'll never guess what I paid - $3 at Goodwill. I got the box of cams seperate but I would guess they came in together but were put out on the floor apart. The cams were $3.99. I figure the cabinet alone is worth more than $7 so I brought it home and now I'm having a lot of fun learning about the machine AND the cabinet. Lol*

    Valerie, the cabinets, like the machines, evolved over time, and even within the same era, there were differences in the cabinets in order to accommodate different tastes, styles and budgets. Great example are the treadle cabinets...you could get a 7 drawer cabinet that was plain, or go for the more ornate style with the carvings...same basic cabinet, different looks.

    Ok I think I understand! Thank you Charlee! So the ones listed on ISMACS are just one example of what those models looked like...they come in variations is what you're saying? I thought maybe the picture listed was like, the ONLY style out there! Lol* That helps!
