    Lets's chit chat about the old machines!
    If you have a "New Home" Vintage Sewing Machines please post your pictures here so we can all enjoy your old machines.

    I just looked and the one that I have which was my grandma's is a New Home. I have all of the attachments and manual. It is in a beautiful cabinet, which I have sitting in my living room along with the old spinning wheels and weaving looms.

    I am waiting for the picture to download from cell phone to computer. It is taking a few minutes!

    I have a New Home I purchased from a thrift store. It isn't in a cabinet, it's in a case. I LOVE it, probably my favorite machine. So quiet and smooth running. DD sewed on "Naomi" one day and I didn't think I would get her back :) :)

    Craftybear,
    To find out the year your sewing machine was manufactured call this number and tell them the serial number and they will tell you. 1-800-631-0183
    I bought a New Home treadle and called that number and they said it was made in 1891. I'll post a picture of it later.

    What is the serial I have the dates and serials for the New Home Sewing Machine Company up to 1949. Post the serial number and I will see if I can help you out.

    Okay this is the project that I was tinkering on before everything went to heck and a handbasket last week.

    I have a 1870's New Home treadle that was a BBQ grille and now I turned it into a <gulp> Table........I still need to make the pitman arm and Varnish the top but it should be a nice addition to the studio once it is finished.

    The treadle looks much better as a table than a BBQ grill.

    Here are some photos of my 1891 New Home Treadle machine. The decals are just about gone as the clear coat was bad but I liked the coffin top. I still have to refinish the irons.

    My New Home machine is quite different from what it looked like
    originally. The man who painted it named it , "The Sugarplum Fairy"

    I think its from about 1905

    Here's a vintage New Home - just after I brought it home, prior to cleaning (note the dust!). I got it a month ago for my daughter-in-law who is learning to sew. It sews like a dream.
    I recently got a Singer 201-2, so we each had new/old sewing machines to use.
    1st project we did together was rescue from our basement an old oak couch hubby & I had for 27 years. She & our son are artists & chose bright colors. I think she is hooked - and she loves the color of this machine!

    Question for Billy - when you have time, can you please check year for me - model 532, serial # 39493, J-A 30? Thanks.
    Anyone know where I can get attachments?

    Recovered couch & pillows, 1st use of her new machine. Next we'll make drapes. Our son has a painting for the wall.

    Billy, that treadle base looks much better since your rescue!

    And purplefiend - your New Home is unique - very cute!

    Thank you Montanajan and Dingle, my purple New Home needs more work to sew properly.
    I need to clean the thread path more as my thread gets dirty when I sew and the machine is noisy.
    I bought the machine because she's purple. :D

    I'm loving everyone's New Homes. Purplefiend's is still my favorite. The green younger New Home of Montanajan is a handsome looking machine too.

    I have a New Home treadle and just bought a fairly modern (1970s?) for $5.00 from Habitat Restore. The treadle is in North Georgia and I'm down south. I think I looked it up once and its around 1899. Maybe little brother will post a picture, its a beautiful flip top cabinet.
