    Yeah - know what you mean...

    Hi Crossstitcher,

    Nice looking Davis. She's an old girl, made in 1894, and is called a "VF2". Here's an excellent chart with all the flavors of Davis Vertical feeds since it get's a little confusing:

    The VF2 was made from 1894 to 1911. I have your hemmer collecting dust if you still need it.

    Nancy, I believe the serial number is 43x4489 or 49x4489. Do you know any thing about this machine? Any info will help thank you.

The only problem I have with my 2 Davis machines is that the New Vertical Feed will not fit in the original Vertical Feed's cabinet! I wanted to be able to interchange them, but no go! Anyway, you will love love love that machine - it is so much fun to sew with!

    Nancy I know what you mean sewing with the Davis is fun. This makes my 4th one. But the one I like the best is the one that will use a standard needle and not the expensive long ones.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    An inexpensive alternative to the "Davis long" needle is the MTx190, a common industrial. No fun spending $3 a needle for the Longs. Work on the older Davis and Davis badged Underfeeds too.

    Modern Home, hopefully someone else on here can steer you in the right direction to find dating information on your sewing machine. I use to have all the White dating information bookmarked, but I can't seem to find it now!

    Anyone know what happened to the White Dating site that use to belong to Arachnesobsession?

    Anyone using "Webshot's" now called "Smile" has to pay for the privilege. I miss that site and hopefully a new home is found.
