    Well since I am being such an enabler tonight I thought that anyone living in or around Frederick OK might be interested or know something about this place.

    As a matter of fact, I need a couple of spool pins for the Pfaff 230 and they do have one that it seems they may sell the parts. Anyway, I have contacted them and we shall see.

    Does anyone know where I could find more info on the Minerva? I've done searches but all draw blanks, mainly dating info would be great.

    Thanks again
    If only shipping weren't so expensive I would be glad to send the motor to you!

    Was only joking (truly)!! Would never throw out a hint like that, sorry if I caused any confusion.

    :oops:

    Nuther freebie. When I search CL, I just put "sewing". And there it was on the "free" section. Naturally, we had to check it out. A treadle Singer in the plain vanilla cabinet. Looks like perhaps a 27 with very silvered decals. Also included a puzzle box. This was one of those "its for free on the porch" ads.
    DH also picked up a vintage girls bicycle, The Raleigh", that had the little basket and original bell. He knows someone who restores them.
    Don't know if it is a curse or blessing when the thrift shop and estate sale folks want your name/phone in case they get a machine.

    They have a number of sewing machines that could be cleaned, polished and put back into production. Or if you need parts it might be a good option. Please let us know if this is not a good resource.

    They really do have many that could be redone, but I don't like the 'Pick up only'. How do they ever sell all of those if they don't ship?

    At first I thought it was a mistake but I see the comma so I assume that is the price that he/she is trying to sell it for.
    Another case of someone trying to sell something they don't know the value of...

    I went back to look at the Japanese cloned 15 (the badged Sears Kenmore)today, money in hand, ready to buy. I had made my decision to get it, but sadly found it did NOT have it's cord or it's bobbin case. The person I talked to said it was her sister's, and she took my phone # so her sister could call me. I am hoping and praying she can find that cord and the bobbin case at her house, as both are very specific to this machine and it's dead in the water without them. WHAT A BUMMER...

    I contacted them about a spool pin too. Let's see if you or I get a reply :) Good Luck!
