    The Howe in the picture is more of a work of art than a sewing machine.

    True. So VERY true. I love the variability of this period. Rather than the later automatic "this one is this way" or at best "these variants only"...

    So cool

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Is it permissible to post pictures of your "play day"? At least we play vicariously. I wanna play too!

    I received a surprise call today. A guy had 4 machines and 3 complete cabinets plus 2 partial cabinets and he wanted to know if I wanted to at least look at them. Of course I do!! All were Singer machines, 1 pretty rusty, and the other 3 are doable. 3 if not 4 of the cabinets are are Singer cabinets and one is a mystery. Bought it all plus a box of sewing machine paraphernalia for $100. 1 machine is a 99, 1 is a 15, 1 is a 66 and the other is a Sphinx. The last one is the rusty one and the seller said he thought maybe cats had gotten to it but it had the bullet for the shuttle in it. That one will be looking for a new home for postage only if anyone's interested.
    The partial cabinets are the tops only with some ornate carvings plus mouse or rat leavings in at least one of them. I will attempt picture tomorrow.
    I do have a bum hand due to a freak garage door accident that took part of my right pinkie fingertip (like down to the bone or almost there). Waiting to see orthopedic surgeon on Monday for his analysis and verdict.
    He also had a Hinterberg floor hoop that he and his wife hadn't decided on for the price. I may be interested in that but not decided yet. He inherited all this stuff from his mom's estate I'm guessing. Tons of stuff.

    Great find! I hope all is well with your finger - I'm not very good with injuries :-(

    Thanks for the well wishes. We have all been joking about it. DH told someone that I had sasses him one too many times with an attitude to boot so this was his way of shutting me up. He was kidding but our friend looked shocked until DH said he was joking.
