    Wow, Charlee what a great score! That SewHandy is really pristine! What are you doing with leather that requires the awl? Those crocheted doillies, table clothes are beautiful. I use to crochet doillies with my Gram, although, she made the beautiful ones using those little tiny crochet hooks!

    Very nice machines... I need me some spotters out in the field for deals like those!! I also love the dark stain on this cabinet.

    Charlee - welcome back and your little 20 is soo cute. Wait a minute..we both have November birthdays!

    To those of you in Ontario or with friends nearby... I came across this link.

    Thanks Nancy!
    I make Mountain man style "medicine" bags and "possibles" bags with the leather...beadwork is almost as good as handsewing and handquilting for "brainless" activity! :) I can solve most of the world's problems while I'm beading or quilting! :lol:

    The one at the thrift store looks to be older than the link picture. It has a reverse knob, and looks like it would do zigzag (length and width adjustments) but not much else.

    Weedwoman, it also indicates the machine was made in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada.

    Justtrish, I wish I were up there! the two vikings pictured are like my youngest machine. My girls both have laid claim to it. Wish I could get them so there won't be a fight =:o

    Charlee, as usual, some wonderful finds! I'm glad it was a fun break for you.

    Charlee - your crocheted doilies are beautiful. I learned to crochet with a steel hook & bedspread weight thread when I was 18. I love finding crocheted items like that but sorta sad because the makers family didn't value them. I was given a bunch of doilies by a friend who got them from a friend. The friend who made them didn't have any family to leave them to. I will treasure them forever and after me, my daughter will.

    Lee, beautiful machines both of them. And great prices. Did they look like that when you purchased them or have you cleaned them up?

    Good thing you are "in hiding" or I might sneak over and take a peak at those beauties. But judging on the background in the pictures, you are not near me.

    I would get that 2 spools no matter the condition. They are very hard to find. make sure the bobbin spool holder is there.

    Congratulations! :-)

    Here are a few photos of the aforementioned mystery Empira machine. It seems to be moving freely and smoothly. I just have to reattach the belt.

    Has anyone heard of this machine? I have looked all over on the web and have found nothing, spare a quote on Google books about a lawsuit involving an Empira Sewing Machine Company!

    Nice to know you can actually fit a treade in the back of a Subaru Forester! Sorry for the distracting backdrop.

    That Minnesota will clean up great!! Can't wait to see it. Did you get the 2 spools? Talk to Bojangles...she has 1 or 2.
