    Miz Johnny isn't the 20x1 a Boye # 4?

    Could be, I'd have to look. But a 20 x 1 needle is cheaper than buying Boye tubes!!

    It's a badged Japanese class 15, sold by Montgomery Wards. My mom had one, and it sewed beautifully!

    I love machines, and the old, "strong and heavy" type. I enjoy the sound of close tolerance machines in action. You could say I sew very little, very little. It's easier than collecting old cars.

    I do want to make some quilts, I have been purchasing different printed fabrics with art for children and myself, Plane's train's fishing, machines, etc I should get a book on quilting. Perhaps that is a project I can do a little at a time, leaving the quilt in work in a wicker basket for aesthetics.

    Well, then, we should party! Happy birthday to you, too!! I'm still having a hard time figuring this out--did I have to list my birthday when I joined the board??

    I am spending the day in a vain attempt to clean my bedroom. (There are 5 full-sized machines and two portables in there, in addition to enough books and magazines to last the rest of my life.) So far, the only big surprise I have found is my youngest daughter's Christmas money from about 10 or 15 years ago. She will be happy. :-P

    I have everything from handcranks to electric, dating from the 1800's to the 1960's. I am absolutely facinated by the beauty and mechanics of these machines and the history and technology that created them. I also have tons of attachments and collect just about everything I can find that are tools, information and related to them. As you can see, I have become addicted to this passion. I have learned to clean, adjust and work on the machines along with sewing on them. I love to treadle but have to do it in small increments due to a bad back. I quilt and have made them on treadles and a 301. I have also participated in quilt block exchanges and done the blocks on handcranks. Although I use more modern machines also, the vintage ones are my favorites and the ones I prefer most.

    Yes I have it and its around 1882. I still need to take some photos of it but I will say I am really liking the sturdiness of the treadle. The drawers ride on cast iron trays and are not flimsy like the Singer drawer packs.

    But it came with all of the accessories and I need to do the complete cleaning and possibly refinish the cabinet and the coffin top. But it is in pieces and the irons will be sandblasted and painted first.
