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
    Hi Kelly,

    Do you own this machine or are you thinking of purchasing it? I ask because the flooring looks to be in a store.

    The Standard in the photo is the Standard Rotary( takes a bobbin) and not the Standard No.93-V. If you look at the photo of the pages that you have posted, the photo of that machine (a vibrating shuttle) is different from the Standard in the cabinet.



    I own a Standard like the one in the cabinet.

    Names can have a profound impact on a person. My first name is Joseph for my Grandfather. My middle name is Gail after my father. His first name was Hiram. He was called Gail by friends and family. I never did like being called that. As I got older I still don't like it, but now I don't have to worry about it because anyone who would call me that is dead and gone .

    Nancy, I believe Cathy also owns a Standard.

    I do not have any paperwork for my Standard. The paperwork that I have is for a White Rotary. The Standard wheel rotates in the same direction as a White, which is backwards from the Singer machines.

    Cathy, Do you have any paperwork for your Standard?

    Nancy - thanks for this information. You just saved me the time of doing motorectomies on my White I've tried treading with the 9W (which also rotates backwards from the Singers) and I find it frustrating. I'll stick with the ones that turn the way I'm used to for actually using on a treadle and just clean the White up so it's pretty.

    Valerie, my oldest daughter is the receptionist/eyeglass repairer, etc for an optometrist. She does a lot for the Amish as far as picking up and returning glasses as they are 20 miles out of town. They are very hard on their glasses so they greatly appreciate what she does. Her daughter (my GD) has the reputation of being the best customer at the Amish store - she's feeding 3 growing boys. The community made my daughter a gorgeous quilt when her house burned - a queen size multicolored Lone Star. When we delivered a pair of glasses one evening, we were given wonderful vegetables and a tour of the new house. I know she had a pair to pick up at 7:00 this morning and return this evening. The child can't see without them so what she does is special to the community. I don't buy much at the store, but I did buy a wolfdog from another Amish community. That was interesting.

    Names - I disliked my name growing up, but I no longer care. There are worse names than Judy. 10% of my HS graduating class were Judys- thank to the popularity of Judy Garland at the time we were born.

    That's because it's the reply email address, not the link to the ad.

    It's too long a story - basically I bought a 3/4 Siberian/1/4 Malamute from an Amish breeder. The young man wasn't there and his mother told me my choice wasn't for sale. Keeping her? no, spoken for? no. So I started to leave, but the woman stopped me and took my money so I took the beautiful Mia. After spending a week or so with her, I suspected what I had. My son called the seller (they have phones in their barns, but not in their houses.) After a good deal of hemming and hawing, D convincing the young man I wasn't going to turn him in or breed her, he admitted that a unneutered half Sib/half wolf had 'visited' his female. He felt Mia was the only offspring and was going to destroy her. The man several miles down the road had bred wolfdogs when they were legal and refused to remove or neuter all his animals when it became illegal to have or bred them. Miss Mia was a wonderful, intelligent animal but for a while needed different training Thank goodness for a library book written by man who had to train a wolf for a movie. It was very helpful. One of her doctors was the doctor for the regional wolf sanctuary and he ran Mia's blood with only a number to confirm her heritage. It gets worse - when Mia was 4, I had to work an extra hour a day, so I went to the shelter and brought home a "Husky mix." Cleaned up and healthy, she turned out to be half American Eskimo and half coyote. The same doctor thought it was funny. Those two had a great time.

    Wait,..there's a way to tell if they're part coyote? We've long suspected that with our female dog. (supposedly a Husky Shepherd cross) The male was advertised as a Husky collie cross, but when I took him (at about 4 yrs old) to be neutered, they said Malamute collie cross, but that never seemed quite right either. He'd been a sled dog up north until his hips got too bad to run anymore, and was sent down here. That's how we found him. You should have seen him eat a salmon! We were told they were fed that way up north, so we tried it a time or two. The first time without bones. I don't think he chewed once. The second time with, he actually ate around them like the original owners said he would. A couple of years after he passed, we were at a wildlife sanctuary. There was a pack of wolves there, and we both swore that we were watching our male. All of the mannerisms were right. The lanky build for a wolf looked more like him than any Mal (or Husky) I ever saw did. And the prey drive. Holy cow.
