    Charlee, beautiful machine and cabinet. Now we see why she was a 'just gotta have her machine'.
    Let us know how she sews.
    Quilting with a friend keeps me in stitches.

    Trish, she's fast! I've gotten a table runner top nearly done with her this afternoon... She's got a stop motion issue that should be an easy fix, and the bobbin winder needs adjusted. Those are the only two things I've found that are wrong with her!

    Charlee,
    I love your Singer 115, the owl decals are rather rare.; you even got a full puzzle box. Wow! I've seen a parlor cabinet like yours in person once, its amazing how many doors it has! My friend bought one at the NETX TOGA last April.
    My 115 has Tiffany/gingerbread decals.

    Don't know much about machines but that cabinet is the most gorgeous one I have ever seen for a sewing machine.
    What a find!

    Margie's serial number, according to the links on ISMACS indicates a model 27 with a date of Dec 20, 1911, but her decals, shape, etc., all say 115! (The "Wings" decals are exclusive to the 115).
    Ohh, Charlee, she's a beauty and I love her cabinet! So glad you were able to get her without losing any of your other babies,

    Wheeler and Wilson Model 9 my daughter happened across Thursday and gave to me! She is in wonderful shape, Serial #904, last patent date Aug 27, 1878. Just need to clean her up a little, add a belt, and learn to treadle! Everything works smoothly and she does have one bobbin. The cylinder in the accessories picture has 22 needles in it! Whooee. It looks like the cylinder and the manual were in a drawer that may have had the oil can it spilled on them. I am hoping that with a magnifying glass or good camera I can read the address on the cylinder. It was shipped from Chicago, the stamp and return address are easy to see, but I would love to know where it went. I believe that will tell me where she came from. I am going to the second hand store where she was purchased today to see if they know anything about her. Hoping I can learn more. I think her name is Imogene but waiting to see if I learn any more of her history before I am certain. I have spent the last two evenings researching all and I can find on these machines, and all the Wheeler & Wilson 9 pictures that I have found in my research are different, until I found BoJangles picture of the one she has from Portugal. Mine is the twin! I am so excited I can hardly think. And I should be quilting, lol. Any and all information, tips, etc would be most appreciated.

    My first treadle!

    White Rotary Treadle. Found it on Craigslist two weeks ago. Cleaned it up. Oiled it. Threaded it wrong. Asked for help from the board. Got threading info AND a manual. She's sewing like a champ! Thank you to all who helped make her come back to life.

    I call her Dorothy because of the cute little oil can that came with her. Reminds me of the Wizard of Oz oil can.

    Still needs a little work, but here she is.

    My first treadle. I'm now addicted!

    White Rotary FR 2722146. The web site I found puts her at around 1917. She still needs a little work but here she is.

    Four vintage machines

    Singer 401A, my folks bought her (used) for me as a graduation present in 1980. I've been sewing with her ever since! She is still my favorite. A friend recently gave me an old cabinet that fits perfectly.

    My second machine is a Bernina Record 830 from the 70's. My husband bought her on eBay for me for Valentine's Day three years ago. I use her exclusively for FMQ.

    I snagged this Singer 1951 Centennial Featherweight on eBay for only $275+free shipping just a few months ago! It came with an original case in great condition, 2 keys, 2 sets of attachments, manual, etc. I feel pretty good about this purchase! I named her Violet and use her when I go to retreats.

    And, my 4th machine was given to me by another friend, who had begun restoring it. I really need to get it finished. The decals are in rough condition. It looks like someone was a little to vigorous in cleaning. But, it still has its coffin top, a shuttle, 2 bobbins and a foot. Besides, it was FREE!

    Singer treadle model 27, born in 1889.

    Here is my 1912 Pfaff treadle number 'H' from Berlin. It says G M Pfaff, Kaiserslautern on the seal. The slide plate says Gustav Huttig, Berlin. The crown in the middle of the bed decal says GMP, which Monica says stands for Georg Michael Pfaff the founder of Pfaff in 1862 in Kaiserslautern.NancyName:  Pfaff closeup back.JPG
