    What is this one? I can't see the front
    It looks like a Singer 9W?

    This one looks like a Wilcox and Gibbs, although, they say it is made by a Whayne company? With a little work, that would be a really cute little outfit!

    Candace I just have to laugh. I have a sewing machine sort of like that... Different name but same paint job. My DGD was over and wanted to sew a pillow. I grabbed the one I had, we cleaned it up and wow that thing turns way to fast for her to keep up with. Good machine.

    Hey everyone. I'm guessing my time around here may be scarce the next couple of months. Just brought hubby home from his surgery. He's totally wheelchair bound for the next 2 months so I will be waiting on him. He had surgery on both achilles tendons and on his right foot so he can't bear any weight on either foot for several weeks, meaning I have to help try and lift him to transfer from bed/car/bathroom/etc. This should be fun.

    EW sounds like a lot of work in store. It might be a good idea to come around here just to give yourself some down time - take care of yourself a little bit, too - do some stuff you enjoy.

    Well, I'm starting school for the kids maybe next week. I was going to start this week before they decided to spring this surgery on us with only 4 days to prepare, so I may spend next week doing my first few weeks of lesson plans first and start after labor day. Either way I'll be busy! I plan on doing a sewing unit though for my 2 middle boys. My daughter is knowledgeable enough I can set up a machine in her room and let her go on her own. The boys have only sewn pillowcases though and both want to do something more so I thought I'd let them piece two lap quilts for their own use this time. I'm thinking alternating 9 patch blocks or something simple. They share a room so they can do matching ones. Ashley (my daughter) is working on her own quilt and this one will be the first with needle-turn applique. I'm going to be finishing up this baby bedding then turning around and working on trying to make something for a boy for another old friend who is pregnant and fallen on hard times. She doesn't have anything for a boy as her other kids are all girls, so Im going to raid my stash and see what I can come up with for her. My embroidery and serger machines are both in my bedroom so I can work and be closeby if I'm needed. I have a feeling we are gonna blow through our netflix queue...

    you sure seem to have the luck out in your area. i've been looking for 2 yrs for a featherweight, reasonably priced, i guess cheap. have yet to come across one. i guess there is no such animal here on long island or surrounding area.

    Ok everyone, I received my two-tone 301 from Miriam today! It is sooooooo cute and in perfect shape! I will post photos when I get a chance! Thank you Miriam!

    I also went and bought that Davis New Vertical Feed you were all talking about! They wanted $85 for the machine, but I got the machine and attachments for $60. I left the cabinet there - it was a mess - missing the whole right side! I should be able to switch heads with my Davis Vertical Feed and this Davis New Vertical Feed (I hope anyway) so they will both share a cabinet! http://sacramento.craigslist.org/atq/3199210642.html

    Photos later!

    Congrats! That Davis NVF has nice decals. Only clean them with sewing oil. Someone cleaned my one Davis NVF with something that turned the decals green on the bed. So only sewing oil.

    You will like that you can use standard needles.

    And I'm so happy that you got that machine.

    I saw a Ranklin machine today. I know, a Franklin, but pin rash had totally removed the F and nothing else. It was in a case with a bentwood top. Excellent condition with the scarab decals in almost perfect condition for $39. It was electric, but I'm not sure I'd plug it in. The belt was leather with staples which surprised me. The hand wheel turned smoothly and all the bobbin parts were intact. Someone will have a nice machine when it sells, but I don't want it. I have enough machines I can't lift.

    It's time to call and see if the 301 sold. The other interested party was to see it at 5:00.

    Jenn, take care of yourself, too. I can't imagine having both done at once. I did one at time so I had one foot to hop on. I wish your husband an uneventful recovery.

    Miriam, you have got to be the best packaging person for shipping a sewing machine there is! We had to cut the machine out of its bubble/egg carton wrap! Wow, was that machine packed nice - one box inside a larger box with tons of bubble/air/egg carton wraps! It came in perfect shape! Yes, I tried it and it works perfectly too! You must of cleaned the machine and oiled it - the machine is clean as a whistle! Thank you!

    Jenn, Wow you have your work cut out for you! Your DH is very lucky to have you!

    Thank you Monica, Miriam, and Skip!

    Irish I hope you get the 301!

    The first caller took the 301. I was next in line, but it's not to be. Such a great cabinet, but it's okay. I still have AnnieRose and her sister.

    Howdy Guys!!

    I am just now coming out of hiding. The sale of my house, the move, the up coming divorce has overwhelmed me far more that I ever would have guessed. I have a habit of pulling into my shell when overwhelmed. I think I'm ready to rejoin the world now.

    Last spring Pat spurr and I announced a sewing machine collectors get-together for this fall. The time is here. The TOGA (people powered or electric machines) is on Saturday Sept. 8th at my house. Hopefully there will be a fairly good turnout again. I moved to Orangevale, Ca (which is only about 8 miles from the old house).

    I am trying to read some of the posts that I have missed in the past three or so months. WOW there are a lot of them.

    Candace, You asked about "a bobbin winder tension unit with screw" for your new Needlecraft machine. Call me I have several of them. I might even have a light.

    Nancy, You posted this Craigslist ad: http://sacramento.craigslist.org/atq/3217256011.html That is a "Fancy Leg Florence". I have seem them go for prices in that $2000.00 range. Beautiful treadle and I know Pat would kill for one, if she can figure how to shoehorn it into her house.

    You'll be missed at the TOGA. Hopefully you can make the Winter TOGA (no date yet).

    Yay, glad to see you back, Cathy! Boo...I ordered the bobbin winder parts already. But, next time I see you, I'll have to ask you about a light!

    I hope life has settled for you and the dust has cleared a bit. Really nice to hear from you!

    Welcome back Cathy! Wow! Life has been very hectic for you. May your next chapter in life be healthy, prosperous, and tranquil...simply the best.

    Sadly, I will not be able to make Sept 8th TOGA due to my family's schedules. I wish I lived closer so that I could at least stop by for a half hour to say a quick hello. Please post some pictures!

    Cathy,

    Glad your back I missed you.
    We'd come to the TOGA too, but there is half a continent in the way.

    Ok Joe what year is my new Davis Vertical Feed S# 3727163? This machines says Bruce Sewing Machine Co, Springfield, Illinois? I thought Davis was made in Dayton after the start of the 20th century? I am going to have to do some research on this machine. Who knows about the Bruce SMC? The machine is in great shape - nice decals - a little bubbling. Yes, Monica I am only going to use Sewing Machine Oil to clean this one! It is interesting as it has a lever like the foot release lever to release some pressure on the foot. This second lever is right above the foot release lever. I have never seen this on any of my other vintage/antique machines.

    Candace, I will let you know how much I like using the 2-tone 301 after tonight when I take that machine to Strip Club!

    Nancy
