    That is exactly what I thought Billy. Hubby told me to go ahead and bid on it but with shipping it was up to over $300. I am kicking myself in the hiney for not going a bit higher lol

    A number of family members rode the donkeys down into the Canyon a couple of summers ago. They're still talking about it. Said it was gorgeous. Cabins were off limits at that particular time so they couldn't spend the night, some work going on. Sounds like you've packed this plan with a lot of fun sights. I see that the east coast is not on your agenda this time, but if and when it is, let us know. We've got a spare room.

I've also spoken with Jennifer (who took the Beaver photos, and who I believe owns the Eaton) via the TreadleOn email list.

    I'll dig through my pictures when I've got the littlest one down for his nap this afternoon.
    I love Claire, she is the sweetest person and will do anything to help you find information that you need. Have you seen the photos of Bernadette's trip to the UK yet?!? They show some of the machines that Claire sends out through the charity that she works with. I just drool over all of the vintage machines that have been donated to them to refurbish and send out.

    Well hopefully with all of the folks here we might can shed some light on your Raymond.

    The east coast might be a good thing to do next year if I can talk my buddy in buying a bike. But I do not think we will be gone for the whole month like I am going to do this time. But if I head to the north east I will be sure to look you up!!!

    ok, this is my Singer 27. The decals are in excellent condition except for a tiny spot. It's filthy, though. The front drawer on the cabinet was missing a whole side, so instead of repairing it, I just had my husband fix it in place. It came with a puzzle box full of attachments, too, but they're full of green rusty crap that'll need to be cleaned off somehow.

    And this is my Raymond Model C. She was pretty gunked up, dirty, some rust, but she cleaned up really well with a little elbow grease and lots of patience. I need to find some replacement drawer pulls. The cabinet has a chain pulley system that lifts the machine out when the top is opened.

    It has a vibrating shuttle and takes hollow bobbins. The top leaf tension, which I'd never even heard of before, and that took me ages to figure out how to use properly, is genius in keeping perfect tension.

    Charlee, that is the machine I grew up with and learned to sew on. It belonged to my mother and now it is mine. It stays at my Dad's right where it has been sitting all my 58 years ......LOL!

    LOL Impatient!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I like it and the funny thing is I saw one somewhere on CL today for $100 in a cabinet. As soon as I saw it I thought of you and darned if I forgot where it was. I really like the machine and I think you will love it!!

    And your photography is wonderful!!

    Billy
    Thanks, Billy! What's really nice too, I have all the feet for it and the manual.

    Billy, you're welcome to drop in here if you make it to the San Diego area. Also, my sister is in eastern Nebraska just off I80 if you need a stop there.

    I have felines that will welcome you too.

    I'll take Char's warning and probably not take you up on a ride although it would be a thrill. :shock:

    This is soo beautiful!!! The decals are almost new looking and the machine is wonderful!! I think the bobbin winder is really interesting to the fact that it twist to meet the belt instead of folding. A lot of interesting features with this one.

    Looks like I found another machine for my ever growing wish list!!

    Quoted from ISMACS newsletter dated May 21 2010:
    I hope this posting is ok. Years ago I collected 37 vintage sewing machines in various states of disrepair, They have been stored in my cellar for most of that time. I now need to get rid of several of them.
    I will be at my Cape Cod home and looking to get rid of them from June 10 - 28th. (I am currently living in CA) If you live in the Cape area and are at all interested give me a call on or after June 10. Several of them will be free, just need to pick up. My number is 508 878 2957 my name is McCall.
    Sandi looks like we need to call this person!! Free is always good but I dont mind paying for something I really want!!

    Thanks for posting this I am sure some of us here are around that area and would love to get in on the sale!!

    Ruth, I think your right about the Feather Weights and the average Joe seller, all it is to them is a little sewing machine and most think they are toys or novelties as such.


    Billy
    Hmmmmm, a ride to the Cape on June 10th sounds very interesting. Only about an hour to the bridges from here!

    Thanks for the heads up!

    I'm in Leavenworth, KS, which is on the eastern edge just off I-70 if you need a place to crash for the night. We're dog and cat friendly just so you know. Brought the cinnamon rolls plus a bottle of Bailey's for the coffee for those of us within walking distance of the shop. :) :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Actually the whipped cream mellows everything out. Because for every cup of coffee it takes a full jigger of each item and no sugar, so half of the cup is alcohol and I only drink Bacardi 151. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
