Crud! Did it again...sorry!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Crud! Did it again...sorry!
One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.
I love your Singer 115, the owl decals are rather rare.; you even got a full puzzle box. Wow! I've seen a parlor cabinet like yours in person once, its amazing how many doors it has! My friend bought one at the NETX TOGA last April.
My 115 has Tiffany/gingerbread decals.
Don't know much about machines but that cabinet is the most gorgeous one I have ever seen for a sewing machine.
What a find!
Wheeler and Wilson Model 9 my daughter happened across Thursday and gave to me! She is in wonderful shape, Serial #904, last patent date Aug 27, 1878. Just need to clean her up a little, add a belt, and learn to treadle! Everything works smoothly and she does have one bobbin. The cylinder in the accessories picture has 22 needles in it! Whooee. It looks like the cylinder and the manual were in a drawer that may have had the oil can it spilled on them. I am hoping that with a magnifying glass or good camera I can read the address on the cylinder. It was shipped from Chicago, the stamp and return address are easy to see, but I would love to know where it went. I believe that will tell me where she came from. I am going to the second hand store where she was purchased today to see if they know anything about her. Hoping I can learn more. I think her name is Imogene but waiting to see if I learn any more of her history before I am certain. I have spent the last two evenings researching all and I can find on these machines, and all the Wheeler & Wilson 9 pictures that I have found in my research are different, until I found BoJangles picture of the one she has from Portugal. Mine is the twin! I am so excited I can hardly think. And I should be quilting, lol. Any and all information, tips, etc would be most appreciated.
Here is my newest machine! This is a Singer 401a from 1961, serial number NCC21005. She uses cams, but has several built in stitches too! A great machine to play with!

My first treadle!
White Rotary Treadle. Found it on Craigslist two weeks ago. Cleaned it up. Oiled it. Threaded it wrong. Asked for help from the board. Got threading info AND a manual. She's sewing like a champ! Thank you to all who helped make her come back to life.
I call her Dorothy because of the cute little oil can that came with her. Reminds me of the Wizard of Oz oil can.
Still needs a little work, but here she is.
