Sewing machine in distress

Recommended Posts

Oh Debbie,  I am looking for a Davis!  I live in Dayton Ohio and they were manufactured here in my old neighborhood in 1889 to 1924.  I would love to own one of these machines.  Some day I will find one closer to home.

Chris, even if you only find a Davis machine without the treadle base, you can generally find the missing parts and base on ebay. Mine is such a one and it looks its age, but sews so smoothly you would think it just came from the factory.

Good Luck in your quest for one.

Gorgeous!  I really love that cabinet, too.  I hope the re-wiring goes well.  I'm a bit of a collector of old machines.  I have a great featherweight, a Willcox and Gibbs chain stitch machine, a Singer 99k that is in perfect condition that I got on Craigslist for $35 (crazy, I know!), and a gorgeous Singer treadle also from Craigslist for $200.  I love them all!
