    Opinion requested on this VSM please!

    Should I call to see if this one is still available. Notice that it has the Puzzle Box, too!

    I'm not an expert, by any means, but it looks like a good deal to me. I would think the cabinet alone would be worth $75. Be sure to post if/when you get it and check it out.

    OH! I want one! IMHO it sounds wonderful! You would have a learning experience getting it all cleaned up & running. (Not complicated.) I've obtained some vintage electric machines & had a great time getting 'em running. Some day I'll get a treadle. Show us picts. if you get it.

    You just can't go wrong if you want a treadle. It looks like a good one for that price.

    I'd go for it at $75 especially if it has a Puzzle Box. My DD and I bought on like it last weekend for $100, but without a Puzzle Box.

    The 15's are really great for free motion quilting. If you are going to get a treadle, having a 15 is probably the best combination. The price is great!! We have $100 or more out here on the West Coast.

    Treadles particularily are being rehomed in this down economy and the price is fair but you may be able to do better with a little bartering pointing out the amount of work needed.

    That's a beautiful Singer 15. Just make sure it has the bobbin case. Great machine for sewing and free motion quilting.
    I'd go see it!

    Talk to seller today and going to see it Monday. But I have to make a decision between this treadle and a 1890s Wheeler and Wilson Coffin Top. I'm going to try to see the W&W Monday, too. Sure wish I had all the experts on the QB going with me.

    Can you get both of them ????? They are both GREAT machines!!!! Can you give more details on that W & W you are going to look at? I now have the 8 and 9 but haven't sewn with either of them yet.

    I now have pics of the W&W and boy is it pretty!!! I just can't seem to post the pics here. For some reason when I copy and paste, QB won't allow it to paste. I tried to do it in a PM, too, and the icons in the Go Advanced won't even show up.

    I am using my desktop instead of my laptop so it might be something with my settings...but how would I know!! LOL

    Wish I could get them both...I hate decisions...but I just got my white Featherweight so money is tight with Christmas gifts, etc. Now if they wanted to trade some jewelry my ex gave me, we might be in business! LOL

    Hi, quilt addict! WAAAAAAHHHHHHHH We have had dreary rain all day here and I couldn't go. Had appointments to see both but I did call the sellers and I'm planning on going tomorrow. The only problem is that we're suppose to have rain tomorrow and Wednesday! WAAAAHHH again. Really would prefer not to take them apart to fit in my car. My grandson is coming this weekend and he has a truck so I may go "pay" for them and pick them up this weekend. I always hate to do that with cash but I guess we just have to trust.Send up prayers for a non-rainy day!!!
