The one name that I always makes me stop and look is "mom" out of habit. When the 3 kids were small, I even thought my name was "Mom"
    Hehehe - I am the Mother of three also and whenever I hear a child cry or call out Mom, I too am up and ready to help!

When she opened them for me, they held their daughters' wedding presents - new, modern machines in treadles.
    What a priviledge to see such a thing - the Amish don't let a lot of outsiders in, though I have to say the ladies at the flea markets and road side stands selling their baked goods have always been friendly and willing to chat.

I most likely will use as a vintage piece, not for sewing at this time. It does have lots of attachments. etc in the drawers and it is in good condition.
    Thanks!! Kelly
    That is one gorgeous treadle and I hope you get to sew on it eventually. The cabinet is just beautiful!

    You certainly couldn't use that catch phrase for a modern advertisement now could you???! Lol*

    PinkCastleDH, I would have never guessed you to be a Kenneth!

    I think it would make a great cutting table, but the repaired leg worries me; and if you look at the end of the table photo it looks like the wood is warped.

    Miriam, I wouldn't have paid the full asking price. I'd have made an offer if I really wanted that table. I do think it would be really cute in a sewing room full of treadles!

    Wow Kelly, beautiful Standard and treadle cabinet! You need to talk to Monica on here (Vintagemotif). She has a Standard too, and I believe those machines have a special attachment that will do a chain stitch too! Did you get attachments with the treadle? The whole thing is gorgeous!

    What is the pink machine next to the Standard? A Sewmor? Do you use that machine? We need to see a photo of that machine too!

    I see your point and do agree. I agree nostalgic isn't probably the best term, but neither is reproduction. Maybe we can come up with something better.

    Hehehehehe, it wasn't the terminology I was losing sleep over - I just couldn't sleep so I was thinking! How about 'duplicate' of an original vintage Singer!

    Kenneth you are right, class 15 machines have been around a very long time, even though, if you look at Singer's records they only claimed to make their Model 15 until about 1957. I don't know what the 'duplicate' machines are called? Anyone know what Singer calls those machines? Anyway, I think we have beat this horse enough. Yes, they are easy to repair, easy to maintain, a great straight stitch machine. But, there is no denying that those reproduced machines were purposely made to resemble a machine from the past!

    Lee, I can't get either ad to come up even when I do a search in Craigslist.org?

    Trish, very cute! Are you going to design a quilt like the brain you made? I love it!

    Nancy - If I'd been a girl my mother was dead set on naming me Kennetha. <SHUDDER> I loved the uncle after whom I was named but there were plenty of times I'd wished for a different name when I was growing up - Kenny got to be a little much
