    Cool New machines followed us home

    So it's been two weeks. Withdrawals have set in. Shakes and fever. Well, maybe not that but...

    First up was the reason we were out and about today. The same person we've purchased several of our machines (13, 48k, 28, Seidel & Naumann, etc...) from had a New Home with the treadle base. We've decided to concentrate mostly on the Singers and New Homes but we only had treadles for the Singers. Not only did we pick up the machine and base that we went for, he tossed in the irons for a later base with what looks to be ball bearing connections. Wow is that smooth and quiet!

    On the way home we stopped in at the antique store where we'd purchased our first New Home machine a little bit ago (also on the way home from buying machines from the same individual, now that I think of it.) While Herself was asking if they had any sewing machines for sale I spotted one sitting up out of the way Looked German but no name evident. High arm, transverse shuttle, solid looking bobbin winder, fiddle base, hand crank, large mother-of-pearl snowflake inlaid into the bed. Bentwood case, herself does our negotiating and she got the price down some so it came home with us. Looking around at various sites it looks like it's probably a Stoewer. On Needlebar it looks like the Premier is a very good match.

    No idea on dates for either machine yet but all-in-all it looks to have been a successful day on the hunt.

    Excellent! They are both spectacular but I especially like the decals on that hand crank! They are different than anything I've seen.

    Beautiful machines! Just think of a treadle as a "winter exercise program". Enjoy!

    The New Home's decals aren't that great but I do like the face plate. We really got it for the base so we can play with our other New Homes. The second set of irons I'm planning to use for a base for the New Home CZ - slip the motor belt off and on with a treadle belt. The action of the treadle is so smooth and quiet that I expect it to mate up well with the smooth rotary machine

    The hand crank was a surprise - we don't see that many of them in antique stores around here. I think that's only the second or third we've seen. They're great for adding to the collection since there's no cabinet to take up space and no wiring to worry about.
