Billy, I just became the proud owner of a Singer Redeye 1914 machine. I think it is a 66, but not sure? Anyway, I will post pictures later, I need a throat plate and the correct bobbins for this machine.

I got this machine at an estate sale today. The people running the sale said yesterday the machine was complete, today it is missing the throat plate and bobbins. Hummmmmmm?

I think BoJangles aka Nancy actually doesn't live in "Rescue", she just put that since she seems to be the number one rescuer of machines around lately!

LOL!!!!!!! Cindy Lou Who I do live in a very small town called Rescue! Yes, I have been sooooooo lucky lately to find these wonderful machines, but I have to stop buying treadles! I now have 6 treadles, although I have given my 1901 Pheasant Decal treadle (the poor one I posted on page 352) to a friend. I will let her take it when I receive some parts I ordered from Billy for her! I am also waiting for a drawer I won on E-bay to replace a messed up drawer.

I have 5 treadles in the house and I promised my DH that I would sell/trade them as I find other's I like better. How can I do that? I love all my treadles! Geeze am I in trouble!

Up until now I have only bought Singer's, but now I have that 1931 White Rotary Electric Black Crinkle machine that is so ugly and different that it is pretty too! OMG! I should post a picture of that machine!
