On the home page scroll down to the packing box and click on it. He has a wealth of information to share.

    Doug, that is great news from the Dr. Now you will have time to read the entire (soon to be) 300+ pages of this topic. Then in your "spare" time (I always love that one, who ever really has spare time?) you can put together a spreadsheet or something like that to help us search inside of this topic....something like: FW machines on pages X, XY, XYZ, etc. W&W machines on pages A, AB, ABC, etc.....Just a thought...it would keep you busy since the Dr. won't allow sewing yet.....

    Keep on taking care of yourself,
    Darcene
    That's a HUGE undertaking. I've already read all the pages once. Not sure I'd be up for it again. No promises, but will see what I can do. Yes, I will have a bunch of "downtime" but I can assure you it won't be wasted time.

    I'm working on my New Home NLB freebie machine, have gotten it up and running and stitching a pretty nice even stitch. I found out that this machine takes a different needle-- CC1221. Some websites and blogs discussing these machines say that one can also use a 206x13 needle. I will also need bobbins. Does anyone know where I can get the needles and bobbins at a reasonable price?

    I have my Mother's Pfaff 130 - not a treadle, but she used this machine almost everyday of her life for 50 years.

    I gave her my Pfaff 1222E a few years ago because it was much more modern than her 130. She tried it a couple times and went back to the 130. She said it was like an old friend. Great machine!

    There are several 130's on e-bay right now -- no treadles, and the bids are ranging from $65 up. I'd offer the $100, that is a good solid bid, and see if he accepts.

    Do you know the year the machine was made? I might be able to help with that.

    Good luck.

    Very cute and looks like it is in great shape. $20 If it calls you buy it for that money. I am a sucker for cabinets any ways.

    Glad to hear the good news that everything is healing well. 4-6 Weeks of no sewing now that is hard!

    That's what I paid for my machine w/no cabinet. So I'd go for it.
