    Do you know anything about the White Sewing Machine Model 1927

    I just bought this little sewing machine from the Goodwill website for about $50.00. I thought it would be a nice one to take to workshops, retreats etc. instead of my heavy old Janome 6600. Just plugged it in, got it threaded and it sews so smoothly.

    Does anyone know when this model was manufactured or where I can find feet for it? I was also wondering if the walking foot I had bought for a machine I traded in would work on it. It was purchased to use with a Janome 3160; The Quilter's Dream.

    It was immaculately clean, came with some simple attachments, a few bobbins and the manual. I think I got a good deal in it???? What do you think?

    Not positive, but I believe Husqvarna acquired White? Might give Husqvarna a call at 1-800-446-2333 and see if they can give you more info?

    Free arm means that the flat bed comes off the machine to make a narrow bed to make it easier to do things like sleeves and cuffs.
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Looks like what they were selling in the late 80s and early 90s - I could be wrong.

    You got a good deal, I have a White dressmaker, which I purchased in July 1968. It is a real workhorse. I have spent thousands of hours sitting at my "baby" and it still is sewing perfectly.

    I'm not sure exactly what qualifies a machine to be either "vintage" or "antique." To me, vintage is anything that's not currently being sold; like the vintage clothing shops that sell clothes from 15-20+ years ago. I just needed more information about this one, and wasn't really sure where to put my question. I've tried to research it online without any luck whatsoever. I bought it because it's light weight and thought I could take it to workshops and to my church's charity quilting once a month. I've been taking my featherweights but they get pretty hard wear there and didn't want to wear them out sewing junky fabric with C & C thread.

    This one came last week and so far sews so easily. It's fairly light-weight too. I was wondering if anyone possibly knew of a source so I could find out its age, especially. Thank goodness it did have a manual, but little more than that.
    Thanks you to those who did respond and try to help me!!! I knew people on here would help if they could.
