    I am a new parent of an Vintage White Rotary Sewing Machine. Serial Number 35X119 then on the bottom of the machine there is a number 813. Other than that I do not know anything about this machine. Would love to find something online about it. Oh yeah I only paid $20.00. The cabinet needs work and it needs cleaned real bad, DH started on it yesterday but he is now out of town for a week, so I will be waiting for him to come home so we can get started on it.

    Please be patient I have lots of pics to attach, about 10 of them

    Funny thing, I got my White Rotary Treadle machine Saturday. It belonged to my grandmother and it has had excellent care. From the serial number I was able to determine the date it was made as 1917. She is sitting behind me now and I am happy to have her in my home.

    Both are just devine and the cabinets will be beautiful once cleaned up and finished.

    Just found out that my machine was made in Cleveland Ohio in 1935. I called the company and they told me. If interested the telephone number for the company is 1-800-446-2333
