Another machine!

I got another machine.   I really didn’t need the machine itself.   I already have 3 Singer 66 machines.     But the cabinet is a different story!

The drawing-room cabinet is a model 22 from 1921.

The machine is a back clamping machine (the feet screw on from the back rather than the side)  and needs an adapter in order to fit a quilting foot to do free motion quilting.   I ordered one but decided to put one of my other machines in it to try it out.

The one I put in is basically the same machine but can use normal feet.


The treadle works great!

Teddy is supervising.


I am on the final stretch finishing up bag orders.   I should have them all assembled on Thursday.


Happy Quilting!

    What a find! I don’t know how you do it. So glad you have a ‘studio house’ to fit it all in.

    Have one (sewing machine) almost like yours. Mine has been stained very dark. Has been on my list to refinish but then I think I need to just sell it.

  16. Louise C says:

    That treadle cabinet is spectacular! I have been looking at treadle machines and cabinets in antique stores for many years, and have never seen this pretty model before. Well done, you! Suzette

    What a beautiful cabinet! I have a White treadle machine in the Mission Oak cabinet. I love being able to sew using such an amazing (and beautiful) vintage machine.

  20. Martha says:

    I get such a kick out of seeing all your vintage sewing machine acquisitions (and also love your wonderful videos of them in action — those bags!). Love your new machine, but that cabinet — it’s gorgeous — I’ve never seen one like it. Was it something only a rich person could have afforded?

    I recently restored/re-wired a Singer 15-91 I found at the Goodwill. If only I could purchase the house next door as a studio — I could go crazy!

  21. Darlene Reid says:

    I love seeing all of the beautiful machines!

  22. Girl in the Stix says:

    What a beauty! I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your blog, Teddy, and the beautiful work you create. Wishing you a wonderful 2017.

  23. Cassie Wilkins says:

    Tim, that is sooooo qeorgous! What a wonderful piece you aquired.

  24. Ginney Camden says:

    Tim my treadle is a back clamper. Where do you get the adapter for FMQing?

  25. glendajean says:

    Ohhh Tim what a magnificent treasure, I have never seen a sewing cabinet like that, they must have been made for the European market only, Im sure there are none Down Under. How lovely to walk in to a room and see that master piece. So glad you found it. Cheers Glenda
