    Introducing Sassy Sally!

    Howdy y'all :c)

    I've been hankerin' for a treadle machine for quite some time now. I even bought one a few months ago and was very disappointed to find that it couldn't be fixed. So this morning I went onto Craigslist and did a search for "Sewing Machine" and saw Sally! A church in a neighboring town had been clearing out a bunch of stuff that was stored in a couple of rooms there, and found her in a back corner of one of the rooms. I arranged to go out there after I got off work, and it was love at first sight! My birthday is Wednesday, and she is my present to me! Here is what I saw when I got to the church! :c) Does anyone know anything about this machine? I'd sure love to know more about her! :c)

    I know Sherian! I'm scared to death someone is gonna tell me she's a reproduction rather than an original, but I'd still love her anyway! LOL!

    She is a pretty machine. None of mine look that good and those decals are very nice! If you give us the serial number we can find out what it is. My 115 has the tension on the faceplate like that.

    I have nothing useful to contribute, I just wanted to say she's a beauty....looks too elegant to be a repro, but who knows....I'll leave that to the experts here. Do have a very happy birthday

    Do you have her serial number? That will tell you if she an original 27. She does look to be in excellent condition.

    There doesn't seem to be serial number in front of the pillar. You need to check with Charlee or Billie, who isn't posting right now, but I think there should be if she's original. Look at the pics of the 'new' machine named Judy in another post.

    Either way, she's gorgeous and will sew a pretty seam.

    Even if she doesn't work, she's gorgeous to look at! The cabinet is beautiful, too.
