I will go see him later today and pick it up. Thanks. Oh, I should say I REALLY needed that machine. It makes like #35, and it has only been a year. DH is getting as bad as me, I passed on 3 this last weekend and he keeps telling me we should go back and get them. LOL
    Glad you got her and saved her from being a table. I know what you mean about machine numbers. For years, I was content (mostly) with the one machine and now I have approximately 25 machines. Some of them are going to different homes but most will be staying here.

    I love the company here!!!! Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday.

    Billy, Hope you are improving!

    IF I had just won the lotto, or if I had money to blow...

    This would be my first purchase:

    I'm in the mood to go shopping....across the nation.

    And if this were really true that I were extremely wealthy...first stop would be dropping off a National Two Spools and a Davis NVF to Sharon, Purplefiend. Then afterwards would be the rest of the gang here. It would be Christmas in September...I love to shop for others!

    Here is a Video of machine in action:

    Very cool machine to play with! Great for quilting and sewing on the binding. The only Davis that takes standard needles, 15 x1, is the Davis NVF.

    Trish's cabinet is gorgeous!!! Trish do you already own a Davis Vertical Feed or is this your first?
    Thank you! That video is great.

    The bad thing about coming here is that I keep wanting another machine!

    I guess it's good that my little Geo Metro couldn't hold that thing. I would love to have a treadle, but where would I put it???

    Yeah! I too have picked up machines that I thought I never would pick up just because folks here were chatting about their cool finds. I love seeing what folks have rescued! The before and after pictures...this is a fun thread!
