    Oh, it's so beautiful. Never seen a "free" nor decals like those. Just gorgeous. The treadle pedal, too...

    My favorite is "beautiful machine, works"- only to see a small picture of a closed cabinet.

    She did do well! Those Free No. 5 have very pretty decals and the pedal is pretty too.

    A lot of night owls tonight! Is everyone working on projects?
    I'm taking another break from basting.

    WOW! Mine was made in 1908, too, but in America. It has the old back clamping attachments, but I don't care. I will probably only ever straight st. with it, anyway. It's got a ton of attachments but they look like Greek to me!

    ;)
    sewbiz, If you go to my post you can see a pic of my lotus. Glenn
    Oooh, it's lovely. Your decals are in way better shape than mine, on the bed. My center decal is pretty wiped out, and someone painted black over a part of the bed border decal right at the front. :(

    So, am I right in thinking the only dif between a lotus and a brown lotus is that little bit of red on the ends of the small flowers? Any other differences?

    One day we should all meet in the Stockton area. Nancy is somewhere close to there, and Penni lives there. I'm sure there may be others too.

    buslady,

    Nancy shared a site that dates my machine, and probably yours if you don't already have that info. Just thought I share it with you if you missed seeing it. The site is http://community.webshots.com/user/arachnesobsession.

    Showbizgirl,

    I think the lotus brown bed decals are more brown than orange on the outer edge of the bed decals. Mine look that way.

    I have stared and stared at those two photos and the only difference I can find between them is that the tiny green flowers have red tips on the brown lotus. On the regular lotus-- no red tip. The colors are pretty identical, to me.

    Must... go...to....bed.....

    We have very poor interneet service at our home, short of satelite, which is too expensive for what i am home, so only have cell phone access. very hard to read and see, so i am waiting to go to daughters and use her dsl to look up my two white rotarys. am also looking for info on my domestic. project for snowday is to set up a book with pics, info, etc for each machine. since joining this boaed i have accumulated something like 11 new to me vintage machines. i think DH has given up trying to "save" me! my entire family, as well as friends, coworkers, employees, all think i've lost my mind. I insist it is just the opposite, it is what is keeping me sane! LOL thank you for the info.

    Thank you!

    Wow Sharon loved your Webshots. How many FW's do you have? I think I counted 4 or 5? You even have a FW table! I loved the dog pictures too! I don't think I could do what you did with the treadle -- I am not that innovative.

    The Domestic was a badged White machine. You should be able to find out about that machine on this site too as the badged White machines are also listed!

    Very NICE! Also enjoy that treadle in your sewing room.
    Thank you all that commented on my "Free" treadle! I love the little parlor cabinet! I love the treadle peddle! I love the machine! The whole package! That cabinet when closed up is really small. You can't tell it is a sewing machine cabinet! Now I have to get her all oiled up and see if she can sew!

    I have been using all my treadles, but until yesterday didn't have one in the sewing room where I need one to be! I put my Mother's beloved Pfaff 130 away for now. Put my Koala cabinet in one of our storage units -- then moved the 15-88 in the sewing room! I can now piece with the 15-88! So exciting!

    I think Mom would be ok with this as she use to sew on a treadle as a young lady! I wish I knew which one!

    Ok..when the snow is over, I get to go up north a bit to look at 2 more machines. Have a pic of one.. the lady had someone give them to her and she just pretty much wants them gone. The no pic one is a "japanese zigzag in a table"
    The other is this singer, not working, in a box. I looked this up by the number and it's 1936.

    Billy, this won't be one you do over..but one of the others will be..maybe 2. I have been looking at paint colors

    Gee thanks Billy but ummm I was wishing I knew someone closer to home. LOL Though I'm sure it would be a lot of fun getting to take yours for a test drive. You house sounds like it could be a sewing machine theme park!

    Kathie - I may take you up on that offer...once the fog lifts! :) I'm several hours south in Fresno & try to stay off the highway this time of year. But once my sun comes out...
