    Here are a few of mine. These are the machines that are close by so that I could take pics of them.

    This is a Singer 128~serial # 10886656~date-1892. This uses a vibrating shuttle rather for a bobbin. I am in the process of cleaning it so some of the pieces are off of it, right now. I bought this machine in a local thrift shop. I don't know what the decals are called but they sure are pretty.

    This is my little white FW-221. It arrived yesterday with it's spool pin snapped off :-(, but it came with the cutest little oil can! . I don't know the year it was manufactured but it was probably mid 1960's.
    Attachment 212696

    This is a Singer model 66 with the 'Red Eye' or 'Red Head' decals. Serial # G6969592~manufactured in 1919. I have several red eyes and it was my first vintage machine and started the ball rolling for me!

    If you call this # they can date the Singer machines for you...: 1-800-4-SINGER (1-800-474-6437)

    Cabbagepatchkid, are you sure this machine is a 128? Can you measure the machine? Those decals are called Orange Blossom or Dogwood and they are very pretty, but your machine looks to me like a 127, which is a full sized machine. I have not seen that decal on a 28/128, but that's not to say it didn't exist! Also, what happened to the spoked hand wheel?

    New owner of 15-91

    I'm finally an official member of the Vintage & Antique Machine Enthusiasts. I purchased a 15-91 at a yard sale today. The only thing she seems to need is a new bobbin case and that should be here early next week. Once that's installed and tuned up she will be in business. I think a perfect name is Rosie after my grandma. She was born March 1950 and was originally purchased in New York. This means she has traveled across the US from the East Coast to California.

    This refers to a thread from Muv. She has an old machine - Sterata? With a gold decal of a bearded man wearing what seems to be a lot of drapery. There is also an owl face and wings underneath. It's beautiful. Thread is old 2/26/2011. But I had to reply because she asked who he was. Great to find this place

    Welcome to the crazy place!!! Neat New Home - I have one - pretty cool insides.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    Here's my 1893 Davis VF1...my second VF1. I found her locally. Not sure of her name yet...she's still in only fair condition..we are working on her, and her cabinet is damaged, as well as her coffin top. However...she's all here, including some of her attachments, and she does sew a good seam. I'm very happy.

    Thanks for the welcome. I'm barely a quilter. Mine number three and they are all just patchworks. And they keep getting smaller and smaller. My machine is a 1938 Singer. From my Aunt Rita who sewed her daughters brides maids dresses.

    My patches squirm around and the strips are never neat and clean. I start out that way and pretty soon end up tacking on extra strips to make up for the gaps!! :|

    o well, they are truly homey looking and ol' Ritie and love each other too much to end our days and part ways.

    One of my latest acquisitions I hadn't posted photos of yet. Jones Hand Crank. Not sure how old she is but she works. I just need to clean and oil her up and she's good to go. I will probably try and build a case for her.

    Hi All, I have another sewing machine to add to my collection (1915 & 1939). This one is 1951. Don't know the model but it has been rewired and works! My other two don't. Got this one for $20 Canadian. The cabinet is in rough shape, but I have the exact same cabinet for one of the non working machines that I thought I would switch out.

    Cathy, I thought the 201 had the light mounted in front. I was thinking that this one is a 66, but I could be wrong.

    If the serial number does in fact start with "EG," that machine is a 201 from 1950 or 1951. I am not sure about the serial number, but it looks to me to be "EG?"

    Only the 201-2 with the potted motor had the light on the front. The other 201 models had a light on the rear.
    To recognize the 201remember that it has a stitch length lever and back plate the same style as the class 15s, but with a tension unit on the front of the head.

    Good to know - one more bit to add to my recognition method. I've never seen anything but the -2 and had no idea they were different in that regard.

    Thanks for identifying the model! I will search for the manual, so maybe I could learn how to oil it. In one manual it mention lub for the motor? And the black belt on the end has some fine cracks but still works. It sews quite nice. Any good sites for knowing how to care for a 201?

    I really would like a featherlight I will keep looking.

    Jenn, that Jones is going to be absolutely gorgeous when you get it cleaned up!

    Congratulations Janice! I love the Davis machines! What a lucky Davis VF1 to have been rescued by you! I couldn't pass up a Davis either - love those machines!

    Welcome Steve,

    You'll like it here with the many like minded souls. I like your machines.
    Where in California are you?
