    Your 115 is one of 10000 authorized Aug 28, 1919. That is a very nice machine.

    Yep, definitely a 115. You can tell by the bar that comes across from right to left.
    I love these decals, mainly because my grandparent's Singer 15 has them.

    Is that Mother of Pearl??? It sure looks like it in the pictures.

    Editted to add: I guess not. I looked at the first pictue zoomed in for a close-up and the decals on the body look the same. Oh, nevermind...

    So she is a 115. Now I just need to find a collector in the San Diego area. She needs to go to a good home!

    It doesn't have to be a collector. this model is as far as I know regarded equally as good for FMQ as a regular 15, and quite a few of us has taken one if these old straight stitchers into regular use. The flatbed and smooth running parts make them a joy to work on and they are very capable for most jobs. If more people new how good they are they would be taken into use again more often. I have a simpler looking machine, but it's very easy to fall for the more elaborate decals too.

    Do you do FMQ on a treadle?

    Well, some do and have developed this fantastic feel for the needle, foot and hand movements. There's quite a few youtube videos on it. I have a motor and pedal on my 201, and I don't do much freemotion, but have managed a bit of test stitching and a bit on smaller items. I now and then sew clothes like jackets and trousers when I have the time and find a nice fabric I like. The 15 and 115 are considered easier for FMQ. The bolt and mount under the hand wheel on your 115 takes a regular Singer motor bracket and if the bobbin case is still there it's usually easy to get it running again.

    Someone does, but shipping to WI is too pricey. Sigh...

    Same with here to KS.

    To answer the FMQ question, I just wanted to say I FMQ on my 15-91 and love doing it. I haven't tried FMQ on a treadle yet, but a few quilters here have. They have described it like the patting your head and rubbing your stomach trick! It can be done but you have to treadle like billie-ho!
