I'm finally an official member of the Vintage & Antique Machine Enthusiasts. I purchased a 15-91 at a yard sale today. The only thing she seems to need is a new bobbin case and that should be here early next week. Once that's installed and tuned up she will be in business. I think a perfect name is Rosie after my grandma. She was born March 1950 and was originally purchased in New York. This means she has traveled across the US from the East Coast to California.

Rosie seems to be in perfect condition! Enjoy!
It's Solomon. Owl for his wisdom. "Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they labour not, neither do they spin.… that not even Solomon in all his glory was arrayed as one of these."
This refers to a thread from Muv. She has an old machine - Sterata? With a gold decal of a bearded man wearing what seems to be a lot of drapery. There is also an owl face and wings underneath. It's beautiful. Thread is old 2/26/2011. But I had to reply because she asked who he was. Great to find this place

Here's my 1893 Davis VF1...my second VF1. I found her locally. Not sure of her name yet...she's still in only fair condition..we are working on her, and her cabinet is damaged, as well as her coffin top. However...she's all here, including some of her attachments, and she does sew a good seam. I'm very happy.
