    It all sounds so inviting, doesn't it? ... I like the bit where you're not allowed to call except to consummate the sale.... OR for information.... but absolutely NO other reason......

Don't own one but would like to just to compare. I have a Juki and a few other odd ones.
    No she did not apologize, but somehow she was still able to make me feel like it was my fault.
    BTW, That blue cabinet is a screaming nightmare!

    LOL, Oh yeah! I have 3 old cabinets (Howe, W&W8, and Singer 12) that are far more deserving of the rare time I have to spend in that direction...

    Hey, maybe that is an option, I could trade some of my cooler 1900+ machines for cabinet refinishing...hehe

    I love the decals on the Greyhound. Usually when I see odd prices they're from a consignment shop's percentage markdowns of languishing merchandise.

    Possible they meant 100, and slipped the last key. I do it all the time.

    It must have been. But seriously, that is a badged Anker C-Z. Aka Free Westinghouse. Fantastic machine and looks to be in great shape too. Charlee just got one of them and was asking about it. http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...ml#post6069146

    I think this thread has given it some good PR ... despite the fact that it can't type. When I first saw the thread earlier today it was $5.00 ... now at $23.00.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Marguerite is the correct spelling, it was my Mother's name. The Marguerite irons are pretty, I wonder what they look like whole.

    Now I see why we can't find any treadle bases... ARGH!!! I agree totally..
    We have at least three heads that need homes and the bases are all but nonexistent and Bloomington is not that far from us...
    For a while there was a guy advertising on CL and Freecycle wanting old sewing machines for "art projects" Joe and I both were curious as to what he would be making out of them. Wonder if it is the same guy.
