For these machines to stay up in this type of cabinet the chain is needed, correct?
It's still a very gorgeous machine and cabinet!
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
I (we) want a bigger (much) house with a full length or width screened off porch so I can sit outside and cogitate on the world or sew or drink iced tea or rock in the rocking chair I don't own.
Nancy's comments about treadling out doors in the storage shed sounds peaceful and relaxing.
Charlee, I am sooooooo an outdoor person! I love doing things I love outside! Working in my back yard - pulling weeds is therapeutic to me, planting flowers, riding and cleaning poop out of the stalls and paddocks, and even - YES - sewing outside in the cargo unit! What could be better? Well, here in sunny California, I can be outside 9 months or more out of the year! This year we didn't get any rain until now - the whole Month of March has poured - but the rest of the winter was beautiful! I do understand about where you live, though, being locked inside most of the year! My Aunt lives near you, and she is an outdoors person - who, hates all the rain and snow!

I am not an outdoor person but DH built my sewing room across a driveway he uses to drive into the woods. I love going over there and sew to my hearts content. I don't even turn on a radio just the hum of the treadle or an elec. machine. In the winter I fire up the wood stove and usually by afternoon I have to open a window. DH joins me every once in a while and we have lunch I'v cooked on the stove. Then he is gone again. I come back to the house around 4 and tell him "I'm home". It's been so nice. I have several machines to choose from FW's, 301"s, Davis VF, 319,Franklin treadle and my 66 treadle.
Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.
