    So much for the post-holiday slump!

    In the past 4 days I have gotten 4 machines. MY DH is pointing out that just because the date has matched the acquisitions, that I should NOT keep up the pace. Pics are forthcoming for some of these. The list is:

    New BelAir- red and white like Miriam's boss's machine
    1912 Red eye 66- rusty, no bobbin assembly
    1910 Red eye 66-rusty, no bobbin cover plate or take-up lever
    1910 something- I know it is a 66 but there are no decals remaining at all.

    The 1910 red eye came in a banged up treadle cabinet that I think has promise. I was going to use it as a hand-crank until I got the cabinet done, but it doesn't have a motor mount hole to attach the crank to. I guess that is treadle only, unless there is some other type of hand-crank I don't know about.

    I know what you mean. My DD just called me from a not local to me thrift store and told me she might have found another 201 mounted in a Kenmore cabinet. Problem was she could not raise it out the cabinet to see if it was a 201 or 15-91. Question was it worth $20? My answer absolutely. Results, the New Years Resolution is shot to heck.

    Hey! I want a red and white machine...lol.
    This is the time of year to get a good bargain. Lots of people get in the mood to clear out clutter, after the new year.

    Somewhere, sometime I did see a handcrank that mounted horizontally on the surface of a treadle cabinet. This was a Singer model. I am in need of one that style also - but of course, now that I need one I can't even find an example of it.

    I bought my 12th machine on Friday. It's coming from New York so saying a few prayers that UPS doesn't toss it around too much. There are just so many different ones out there.....how can we say no?
