iPhone-o-Gram! Machine Sighting!

I stopped at an antique mall on my way to my sewing retreat – why is it that people pile so much stuff on top of the machine cabinet that you can't get in it to see the machine?

It's not like it's a dresser or a dining room buffet table – all of the goodies are inside the cabinet!

It took some doing to remove the froufrou stuff from the top of this cabinet, but I just had to see what was inside!

It was so worth it – inside it was a beautiful machine with gorgeous decals! It's a new home!

It's got the same leaf tensioner that my new hand crank has – and the same funky threading system :-)

I checked and the shuttle is there!

The price is $195.00. I left it there mainly because there is no room at the inn.

This is the ultimate in catch and release – a beautiful machine, I'm happy to have seen it and I'm sure someone will snatch it up and give it a good home!

  1. Ooooh! Aaaaah! It's beautiful. Thanks so much for sharing! I love vintage machines. I just got a Singer Spartan to add to my collection last week for $20.00. It sews a beautiful stitch and is so much fun to use! Have a super day!

  7. It always amazes me to see the ancient spools of thread that generally always hang around with their machine. Kind of cool.

  12. I left a pretty turquoise singer at the Goodwill this year. It really needed work and my husband would have divorced me as there is not place to put it. That machine cabinet was worth the investment. It is beautiful!

  13. I'm looking through Craigslist for Knoxville, TN this afternoon and... look what I found for you!! Lady seems to have done quite a bit of research for this, much offered by the White Company! http://knoxville.craigslist.org/atq/3632046565.html Am I right in assuming the wooden box on the top would be the actual machine cover?
