    I think I saw a 301 in Phoenix AZ in a table with a bench for $150 - looked good - it was a couple days ago though.

    I will be doing straight line quilting, using my Davis NVF for that.

    Beautiful work, Nancy. I am so jealous...My Davis is still sitting on top of a box. I might have to go down in the garage and cut the board myself to make the top for the treadle base for it. My DH started back to school, so every time I start to ask him about it, he says "homework!". (sticking out tongue!!!) Phhhht!!! I was here first!!! LOL

    I just did something I didn't think I could do. I fixed a Singer Merritt today. I picked it up for some parts - low and behold it needed a GOOD cleaning. There was a bobbin loose under it and it's thread got caught in the belt - locked up the machine something terrible. The lady took it to a repair shop and they told her it wasn't worth fixing. I got that all out, cleaned it up and away she sews. I like the nice wide zig zag that one has. WOW.

    Welcome aboard! According to your serial number, you have a Singer Model 115 allotted on July 25, 1916. Go to our Photo shop and look at post # 416. Vintage Sewing Machine Shop Machine Photos That is Charlee's 115. Does your new machine looks like hers?

    Billy, Lostn51, who started this thread probably has your thread quide or thread pin which ever you are missing. Cathy on this board probably has the part too.

    It was listed in Citrus Heights. I printed out the ad, or I'd of thought I was crazy! The ad lasted a few hours is all!

    I have to ask. Which machine to you prefer, the 401 or 501 Rocketeer?
    Monica, I never had a 501. I have a 503a, which I love, the Rocketeer! I had a 500a that I gave a friend for Christmas. Now I have the 401a too! I can't say yet which one I love. I have only played with the 401a, but I have used the 503a a ton to do the decorative stitches on my Patchabilities! I will let you know after I play with the 401a more, but I do love both those machines! They both sew beautifully!
