    Here is my new "baby"! Born Aug. 11, 1908, a Singer Lotus decal model 66! In the fancy parlor cabinet, no less. LOVE.

    Anyone else own a 66? I'd love to hear tips, quirks, etc. This is my first one. Squeeee....

    It's a treadle, my first treadle, too.

    She's a beauty. That's sure a fancy cabinet. Is it as tall as it looks?

    Oh my, she is beautiful.

    Check out the Virtual area for Vintage Sewing Machine Shop. There are people there who collect and discuss all the attributes of the fine old ladies.

    The cabinet is 30" tall. Maybe my low windows threw you off!

    The center doors hide the treadle footplate. The tall door on the right is where the treadle wheel and belt are housed. The tall door on the left swings open to reveal the 5 drawers. The drawers have all the feet, spare bobbins, the original manual and a tiny, old Singer oil can (see on top of cabinet).

    The machine lifts up and down on an elevator lift. It's awesome. This is Singer cabinet #DR04.

    I had never seen this cabinet before, either. I have been prowling this flea market for old machines for quite some time, and missed this one because I kept thinking it was an old floor radio! Finally the lid on top woke me up and I investigated further. Glad I did!
