    I suppose my husband must pay attention to SOME things I talk about...he surprised me today with this little gem...and tomorrow I get to go pick up my treadle from Tomilu on the board!

    I need to find out her age and if I can find a manual for her, I have NEVER dealt with bobbins like this before!

    Talk about FUN.....I am really happy!

    Sounds like he is a keeper! Happy Anniversary to you both! Enjoy her, a hand crank machine is the one machine I would love to have (other than owning my own long arm machine).

    I had my grandmother's machine which looked just like yours. I remember her sewing with it. Unfortunately, I sold it for $10 long before I found the Quilting Board. I am very unhappy that I sold it.

    That is one of the prettiest machines I have ever seen. Congratulations on your new machine and of course the anniversary.

    Now I'm off to give my husband some not so subtle hints.

    here is something neat...back in '05 when we moved here, there was an estate sale a couple blocks over. It was the sale of the SINGER man..he did service and sales here for over 50 years!!!
    I do not know why, but I bought a couple of those tool chest things with all the little drawers, full of parts to vintage machines...

    tonight I got the box out that now houses those parts and in the mess was one lone key...I took it out and walked over to "Betsy" and guess what...it worked...now her case can lock..yay.....and I have 4 more bullet shuttles and a about 30+ bobbin spindles for her....how cool it that???

    now if I could just get a manual so I can learn how to thread her..hehehe

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Your husband picks out great gifts. :lol:

    I have 1 of these machines - can't remember how old it is now. Have to admit I've not done much with it except admire it. It was sort of a gift from my dh. He went hunting for a few days and when he came home, he handed me a wad of money he'd won playing cards. I put it aside for later and next time we were at the flea market, I happened to find this machine and bought it with the winnings. :lol:

    he is retired coast guard and I found the most wonderful gift at an estate sale of antiques. It is a Boat Lantern...used for signaling! He was like kid with it last night...put oil in it and played with it, showing me signals from outside when it got dark...such a kid...
