    New Queen Anne cabinet & 15 clone

    I can't tell you how happy I am!! I've been looking for this cabinet - with the stool - ever since I saw one for sale locally for $275 and refused to pay that price (without a machine no less). I'd see others for sale without stools, or off in Jersey or Florida for local pick up only.

    Finally ... last night my husband spots this one on Craigs list for $65 with a machine. I was at the guys house within an hour! He said the listing was up for 15 minutes when he got my e-mail (and I had waited 10 minutes for him to answer his e-mail). Lovely older couple in Tinley Park, machine had been in her family since she was a girl. There are a few "accident" dents on the flip side of the top but otherwise the cabinet was very well taken care of - it's in gorgeous condition!! The original plastic foot pads are still on it.

    The machine I barely looked at until today (I know .. shame on me) other than knowing it was a 15 clone. The "name" has rubbed off and I can't read it except it started with an "S" - the bed decals and overall state of the Japan are in very good condition (some minor chips along the edges of the bed). I turned her on and the motor runs (no smoke or odor), foot pedal works, needle goes up and down - but I did not thread her. Her metal bits need cleaning, and there is some rusty dots on the light housing. Her undercarriage gear works need a good cleaning as well. Have not opened her face plate. As I said ... was primarily interested in the cabinet and I will mostly likely clean this machine and flip it (I already have a 15 clone).

    I kinda like the flip top bobbin cover though <G> ... and just might have to keep it for that. Will see.

    I finally have my Queen Anne! And she's gorgeous!! I can't wait though to find the perfect upholstery fabric to recover her original ugly baby-poop brown vinyl seat cover.

    Will post more pic's of the machine on the Will the REAL 15 clone please stand up thread.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    That is a beautiful cabinet and I too love that the stool matches. You did very well on the price too. Congratulations!

    Nice cabinet and stool. I don't have any matching stools for my cabinets. I'm kinda keeping my eyes open for strays though.

    That particular version of 15 clone is a very good variation. I have a couple of them and they sew beautifully. We're it mine, I'd keep it. But then I like to keep ensembles together. Goofy trait, I know.

    The 201 fits perfectly in the Queen Anne....I think the majority of the QA cabinets were sold with them. Just a thought. Nice piece for sure!

    I too have a cabinet like that, but no stool. I also have a marvelous 201 in the cabinet. And I only paid $10 for the whole thing at an auction sale. I really like the machine and the cabinet. Find that I will use my regular high rise stool to sew with.

    I don't have a 201 ... but I do have another 15 clone badged "Illinois" that I really like. I'm thinking about dropping that one in there.
