    Meet Ms Hadley~Free Westinghouse in Cabinet

    While I was browsing CL I came across an ad in Sturgeon Bay, WI (Im in MI). It was for an antiques store going out of business, they had sewing machines listed as a few of the items in the store. Well it so happened that DH was traveling to SB, WI for work this week. I emailed the owner and he just wanted DH to call when he was ready to visit the store so his wife could be there. He found 2 sewing machines for sale, one Kenmore and a Free Westinghouse both in cabinets. He text messaged me pictures of both machines, the Kenmore machine and cabinet were pretty rough and DH didn't like the way it looked. He did like the Free Westinghouse machine and the cabinet is in beautiful condition. It comes with a bunch of boxes and a whole bunch of things in it (as DH puts it) original manual and some other paper work. Oh, and it has a knee lever and not a foot pedal. DH comes home tomorrow with Ms. Hadley and I can't wait to meet her. I have to say I am very proud of my DH, this whole vintage/antique sewing machine thing is new to us and he made sure to turn on the machines to see if they ran and also lifted them up to see how clean/dirty they were.So here she is...

    She really is pretty! Looks older than mine! And mine isn't in the cabinet, just in the case! But I love her anyway!

    That machine looks as though it is in great condition and the price is good too. Lucky you. Do you know the approximate year it was made?

    Beautiful wish my DH would more interested in them. He is doing better, He fixed the foot controller to my Singer 66. I am hoping He gets more involved. That cabinet is beautiful as well as the machine, Joy

    She is a beautiful machine and cabinet. Let us know more about her when you finally meet her.
    I love her name.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    looks like fun to figure out how it works
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
    good mothers let you lick the beaters - great mothers turn it off first
