    That is so cool! I love the way you set it up with your sewing stuff.

    I located an old Wheeler & Wilson in an ad for a garage sale this coming Saturday - got in touch with the owner via email and she sent me these pictures of the machine and asked that I make an offer. There is no cabinet. What do you think .................. please.

    It's very rusty, and there's no way to run it. The only pluses are there are some decals left and it has the slide plate--most of the ones I see have no decals and no slide plate. I wouldn't offer much unless you have a cabinet waiting for it and some Evaporust waiting to give it a bath.

    Are you talking about the original covering that is loose are a new covering? Yes you can but the old glue must be removed with acetone first. Glue will not stick to old dirty glue. You can use a good contact cement very thin or a spray contact glue.
    Yes, its the orginial covering and theres enough of it that I think I can make it work. Any suggestion for a subsititute covering if I have to redo the whole thing?
    I have no recomendations for subsitiude for a replacement but any good quality canvas back vinyl will work. Billy may know a source for material. If you FW case is black it will be easy to find a replacement. Make sure the spray contact is a good quality comercial grade for durabilty. After you glue down the old cover use a roller to make sure it is tight and smooth.

    I like those chairs too - very cute.
    Oh and there is a book with a pattern to make the chair - http://dollmakersjourney.com/robertson.html you have to scroll down the page to find it.
    and if you just want to buy one - here is a site - maybe she is making them - never know... anyway they are cute

    There was one at an auction here today that went for $20, had a treadle cabinet complete with it.

    Thanks for the feedback on the W&W - she sent another email asking $25. Think I'll pass this time.

    The pretty bright green one came from my ever-so-special secret pal in last year's swap...and the darker green one with the doily came from a yard sale. :)
    I think I've seen them at Hancock's and JoAnne's tho...
