    The decal pattern is called Tiffany or Gingerbread.

    Looks to be in good condition. Congratulations.
    I think it's one of the model 15's, also, because the tensioner is on the side rather than the front. I'd buy it just because I don't have anything with those decals (yet:-D) but also because people love the 15's for their free motion quilting abilities. Looks like that one could be a treadle version!

    What are they charging? I know that some people don't want to pay much for these machines but I think I would pay up to around $100 for it. There is lots of info, on this model, on the internet so any repairs that it may need could be easily done.

    Unbelievable - I just came in to ask questions about my new girl and lo and behold, I think it's the same one! I paid $30 for mine, I just could not pass her up.

    Have you found out what they are yet?

    Someone said it was a 66 and someone else said it's a 15. I have both and there a similarities and differences in both to yours. What's the serial number on it? Then you could look it up and find out exactly what it is. I'll post a pic in a minute.

    Thanks! It's G1788578, which looks like it's from 1912ish but I can't figure the model.

    Oh wow, I see what you mean! It looks closer to the 66, but definitely has pieces of both (plus a couple of things that are different still). This is my first vintage Singer so I'm completely lost, thank you for your help!
