There's a few things I love across the board. Sewing, history, collectibles... It makes my newest collection/obsession seem obvious. A while back, I posted about acquiring my grandmothers vintage treadle machine, and that's where it all started. My momma found a 50s/60s table machine to add to the mix, and from there it snowballed. I decided I wanted any and every one I could get my hands on.
So, being a big fan of Freecycle, I kept an eye out for ads and even put up a wanted ad. Boy... did I score! All the machines below were completely free and in remarkably good condition, considering. I still need to do some research and find the years and stories on each model, but, I'm the luckiest sewing nerd ever!
|A hand crank model, complete with original coffin style case.|
|This one came with a box of all the original attachments and notions, plus the original manual. It didn't say the exact year, but that it was manufactured between 1914 - 1941.|
|This is my favorite, by far. It looks like the Caddy of sewing machines!|
