Question Singer Model 115 Tiffany/gingerbread decals

Can anyone tell me what I need to know before I find a new home for this machine? Would a collector be interested or should I just donate it to Salvation Army? Serial #G7295311. Singer serial # lists give me a "birthdate" of 8/28/19

I'm new to the Quilting Board so forgive me if I'm not doing this correctly. I've just been reading some past posts and there are some very knowledgeable (and generous) people in this group. I'd appreciate any advice.

I've been on here a while and wondered if you could be right about the 115 designation. You are I just hadn't run across one ( yet)

Here is some info on them. https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...e-t216990.html



I would guess someone here would be interested.

Welcome, and you are doing fine.

Thanks - that was a very informative link. My machine matches the 115 photos exactly, except for a second, smaller metal disk on the bobbin winder that I expect has something to do with the auto shut off? Mine has a spoked wheel, no motor.

Your 115 has a mounting boss and screw for a motor or a handcrank under the handwheel. That gives more options. Yea.

I'm sure someone out there are looking for 115, because of the rotating bobbin function. They are few and far between compared to a regular 15. The job would be to reach the person who is thinking about this model.

If you know of anyone in the San Diego area, let me know! I'd be so happy to find a collector who would value this beauty.

Crumbs, I wish I lived closer! I love those decals and being rare it's on my wishlist. I nearly got one a couple of months ago off CL for $30, but someone called the seller five minutes before me and got it.

To confirm it is a Singer 115, we would need to look at the bobbin case.

I'll post a few more pics. Let's see who she really is! The first letter of the serial number is very hard to read, but a magnifying glass shows it is "G".
