    Hello everyone,

    I was at the Volunteers of America this past Friday and this little beauty has been sitting on a shelf for months. So, I asked if they would take a little less (originally $59.95). I'm thinking they would want to drop down $10 and the manager came out with $19.99 so I was very surprised and walked out of the store with her along with approx. 7 yds. of fabric. I pm'd Billy for some info about her and I'm going to post some pics for anyone who might know!!

    I have not heard of her, but it seems to me that someone else found the same machine not too long ago. She is already named for you :)

    According the serial number she was born in 1902, but the manual says she's a 15-91. Hoping Billy might have some more info once he sees the pics. The manager said that the top part of the case was in very poor condition, so they trashed it.

    My DH is going to look at it a little closer. We did notice some of the casing is broken probably because of its age. Believe me it will be serviced before I start using it.

    You can look at this site.



    Looks like it might be a 99-13

    It's not a 15-91 clone, cause it has a belted motor. So that's a 15-88? Or something like that.

    Diana! Cute.... I remember seeing a Diana on a craigslist somewhere. I bet it will sew a nice stitch and looks to be in great shape.

    You know, I never thought to ask anyone this. Will a Japanese 15 clone fit in a regular Singer cabinet? Or are the bolts in different spots or something?

    I know, I couldn't believe it. She sure is pretty! I'm pretty sure I would be able to use the feet from Miss Eva (my featherweight) on Miss Diana?

    Mostly, the wiring will need replacing. Check out Billy or sew-classic for replacement wire, plugs, cords and such. Easy as pie. I found the sew-classic tutorial on re-wiring easy to follow. Although, I got my DH to do the rewire on the first one while I watched.

    This is the first one that I have seen, but until I got into quilting, I guess I didn't pay that much attention. I will now! Thanks for the wiring advice, I'll be researching Billy's site as well as some others that have been suggested.
