A few months ago member LovelyL (Linda) mentioned she wanted to sell her 115 head.
Last year I purchased a 66 with a treadle cabinet in fairly bad condition and I took it completely apart and started working on it, but never finished it. mostly because I was not completely happy with the condition of the machine. My husband did a wonderful job of sand blasting and re-painting the treadle irons, and a neighbor wood-worker is going to rebuild the cabinet for me. But I wasn't thrilled with the head.
I contacted Charlee and I asked her that if she had a preference for a machine to sew on, would she choose a 66 or a 115. She said the 115.
So I contracted with Linda to buy her machine and she said she would wait until July when I was traveling through her area to pick it up.
The timing was PERFECT. I met her a few miles off the highway at a one-stop-fab-shop, we exchanged the machine and then went in to shop!!!
Had a great time meeting you and your friends Linda - thanks so much for Gretel. I can't wait to get the cabinet finished so I can use her!!
Gretel sews a beautiful stitch (sample provided by Linda), came with a manual, spare bobbins, and several extra feet. I'm sooooo happy!!!
