GO TO MY FEATHERWEIGHTS PAGE AND CHECK OUT MY NEWEST FEATHERWEIGHT PAINT JOB

I can't pass this up to put on my machines for sale page, it is too nice.

I recently acquired this very nice FREE brand treadle made in Chicago, Ill. I used to have one of these in my museum before i sold the museum as i beliieve it to be the smoothist running treadle of them all due to the fact it runs on ball bearings when all the others i know of had metal, nuckle joints. I have cleaned it, polished the shiny parts, and test sewed with it. It has a box of accesssories also. Soo, here it is!!! Oh, I'm only asking $125.00, as i am out of room. I sold the other one for $300.00

 

 It turns out that there were 130 parts machines from the 1800's to the 2000's and no one took advantage of my offer to sell for only $300.00. Well 7/6/22 the junk man picked them all up and hauled them away. You folks just lost out on thousands of dollars in Ebay sellable machines and parts. There is still other stuff for sale but not for long.

 

I have added a new page to the site, it is for machines for sale that are not featherweights check it out, and there are more to come so come back often.

BREAKING NEWS

I NO LONGER DO RESTORATIONS ,BUT YOU CAN GO TO MY HELPFUL HINTS PAGE AND READ ABOUT RESTORATIONS TO GET SOME IMPUT.

 

 MY NEWEST ACQUISITION

This came in heavily damaged. The needle post was severly bent and the machine was froze up. It took me 4 days to straighten the needle post and another 2 to get the machine to turn. It still has some issues, but in time I will work those out. I started doing research and again ISMACS came to the rescue. It was in one or our quarterly issues. Turns out it is a glove sewing machine to sew the fingers closed on gloves. It also turns out that there are very few survivors of this machine as it was the first model. So without further ado here it is.

The needle plate is top of a long tube that has a very small circular needle inside.

The machine is a model 46K1. It was the very first Singer glove sewing machine to sew the fingers on gloves.

There are only a handfull known to have survived. It was made in the UK.

  

OUR NEWEST FIND FOR DEB'S QUILT COLLECTION!!!  It is from 1935 with an ice cream border.

This is a 1935 Dresden Plate quilt with a distinctive, yellow pattern , 4 pointed design in the center of each Dresden Plate, which is the same yellow pattern as in the ice cream cone border. This exact pattern and date was shown in one of our antique reference books. Lots of 30's feed sack materials in this one.
