    Singer 15 with beautiful Walnut Cabinet

    I just purchased a Beautiful Cab with a Singer 15 inside. AC100612. In wonderful condition, threaded it up and it started sewing right away with a primo stitch. The original book, Keys to cabinet, attachments all included for $50.00. Could not believe my luck. Don't know how to upload pics here. Does anyone have any good hints. I figured out that "Rhythym" is the key to steady sewing. I hadn't sewn on a treadle since is was 10 or 11 years old. I love it. Any tips or hints is appreciated.

    Is that what they call a parlour cabinet? I bought one recently, and I love it.

    Gorgeous! Lucky you.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    That's a beautiful parlor cabinet!! Treadle Lady has some good videos on Youtube.

    This one is my favorites plus she shows you how to thread the machine, etc.

    It would be a miracle if I ever found a bargain like that. You are one lucky person.
