Last weekend I visited a Goodwill - first time ever - with my college bound son. He needed some kitchen stuff for his apartment. I thought I'd see if I could find a antique sewing machine.
I've absolutely no idea if I got a good deal or not. But my son encouraged me to buy.
Turning the flywheel makes the needle go up and down.
Well, there isn't actually a needle (smile). Pressure foot also works.
The treadle does its thing. I just need to attach the belt (or perhaps buy a new one.)
Decals are in reasonably good shape.
There was a box of accessories and an instruction book. So far I can't find anything like a serial number. There is a gold plate affixed to it and google tells me that this catalog company was in business from mid 1800s to 1929.
Anyone know anything about this? I will spend some time cleaning it up and will try to get it working. I think it will make a great backdrop for a quilt display.
