    I wrote yesterday asking how to determine what type of Singer 15 I had purchased-it's a 1949 15-91 in absolutely terrific-looking condition!!!
    the cabinet needs just a little tlc, and I'm waiting for the power cord I ordered, but I have another project going while I wait-refurbishing a 1949 featherweight. Will post pictures of her tomorrow.

    Actually-I saw her the cabinet at a garage sale (the only one I went to that day) and it was closed, in the back, with no price tag. Later that day, I was talking to a friend at a party, and she mentioned having seen it, too. She thought it was a 301. I figured it was history! The next morning, I saw the gal who had the garage sale at church and asked her about it-she said she'd forgotten to open it up and price it-said she was going to ask $10-would I like to see it? Of course!!! So-we went straight to her place, climbed over all of the stuff left from the sale, and opened it up and was surprised how it gleamed in the dark garage!! Knew it wasn't a 301 (which is on my bucket list!) but didn't care!! Handed her the $10 and arranged to pick it up yesterday. I knew it was a 1949, because of the AJ in the serial number (my FW is also a '49). Gosh-I can't wait to get that power cord!!!

    What a deal - I guess it was destined to be.

    Very nice. The cabinet looks just like the one I just got my 99K in. Mine needs LTC as well.

    If you live in East TN, we never find bargins on any sewing machines so you're real lucky. Moosegirl

    Pretty!! The cabinet is a #40, but not the Queen Anne. (There are two #40's....one is Queen Anne, the other is yours) I'm looking for one of those! :)

    AWESOME!!!! That is the one machine still on my wish list.

    I have a cabinet just like that one (it has a 201 in it) and it cleaned up really nice with 'Howard's Restore a Finish' and then some 'Howard's Feed-N -Wax'. It was so easy to do and it really improved some spots where the finish was dull and discolored.
