Singer model 115

Today I drove down to Racine and bought my brand new (to me, obviously it's not new) Singer model 115.

The decals are in great shape for it being 91 years old.  The cabinet is nice too!

One of the problems I had quilting with the 27 was that the cabinet is in rough shape, and the quilt kept catching on chunks of veneer that were chipping off the cabinet.  That won't be a problem with this one! 

I can't wait to oil it up and try sewing with it.  I'm so excited!


  1. Christine, I'm very excited for you. Hope it cleans up, loves lubrication, and works hard for you. I am so looking forward to seeing your next creation.

    1. I lubed it up and it seems like it'll be a good runner. I can't wait to use it!

  2. Beautiful Tiffany in a straight-leg treadle! You can always switch out the machines heads, that is if you want to. Enjoy!
