    Well it was getting a little crowded in the studio with all of my machines and then the customers machines and treadles so I built the second section of my wall unit. Now that wall is finished and after I do the addition to the studio and free up more real estate I will build the other sections.

    But all of the machines I have in the shelves are mine that I use in the studio and there are even a couple more that I don't have in the picture. Yes I have a bunch that I can use LOL!! :lol:

    And this doesn't even touch what I have in my collection that I will not use because I don't want to hurt the decals and finish.

    WOW! That's one heck of a collection! Beautiful machines, though :). I bought a 1906 White treadle at an auction a few years ago - it technically works, but I got beyond frustrated with the tension settings and then trying to wind the bobbin (it kept reversing and getting tangled up in the gears... grr!). This site might get me motivated to try it again for the first time in 4 years...

    I'll take the 301A (?) on the table. I haven't talked my DD into giving mine back to me! Bought it in 1957. She has had it since the mid 80's!

    That one is a 1900 Singer model 24 Industrial. It was used in a hat factory in New York.

    You tickle me. Your work is amazing. Some who haven't followed your posts might think your talents end when you have the machine rebuilt and beautiful. Your quilting tells us you are a well rounded person in the sewing world. I just don't know how you put so much into such a short span of time. It seems you are always churning out a quilt, refurbished/rebuilt machine, motorcycle or car. Thank you for sharing part of your world with us.

    Billy, wonderful to see the machines and your display. I know you don't have earthquakes there. I wouldn't want that top one falling off. :shock:

    If those are the ones that are used, can't imagine the condition of the ones that are too good to use!

    I want a studio too! :mrgreen:

    Love your collection!! I have a treadle that is in an old cabinet with drawers that is in storage and I can't wait to get it here.

    What is the 2nd one from the top?? It looks very much like the one I just purchased several weeks back??

    Was wondering about the white one towards the bottom. How old is that one & what type of machine. It's very pretty.

    I love the way you're storing/display them! Very clever.

    Much better way than hiding them in the basement!

    That is a Singer 500A, to me that was the ultimate Singer machine made. That machine was built in 1962 and I would put it up against any machine out there.
