    So I've been watching this machine for the last month....

    Possibly coveting it.

    It's a Winselmann, and I know very little about them. I don't know all of what this machine comes with, I haven't contacted the seller, because I wanted to have money in hand.

    Seller wants $100 for it. Says in the ad that the machine belonged to their mother and was used by her for many years until electric sewing machines came along.

    Any thoughts?

    I think she is gorgeous also. But when I find an unusual sewing machine cheap flies out the window. Yes, $100 is a lot but I would pay the price to add that machine to my collection.

    I find hand crank machines fascinating. I have a treadle and I do love it but I don't think I'd be able to do much sewing with a hand crank. It makes my shoulder ache just thinking about it. Maybe someone who uses one can tell you if it's a good buy or not. If you are just collecting it, it is a neat and original piece.

    If you have the hundred dollars and really want it then buy it. If you wait too long you may miss out.

    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    OK,.. that decided me for sure. I sent off an email. Hopefully I'll hear something soon. We're in the city tonight, so maybe I'll even have information tonight.

    I think she'd be a display piece, but that's what I thought about Betty, the 27 treadle when I bought her too.

    She called me back about 20 mins ago. I'm going to see it in about an hour and a half.

    Hope you get her!! I have two hand cranks and love them. Haven't used them yet, but will one day. i was at a quilt show and a lady was using her handcrank and it didn't look too difficult. She said it was not difficult.
