vintage brother sewing machine

My husband is a very talented machine repairman. And he is more than willing to contribute to my love of vintage machines. I have never met a machine he could not coax into a useful tool. This one he even found on a curbside, abandoned and unloved. The color is not as blue as it really is in real life. It's a 1950s Japanese clone for the Singer 15 models, I believe. She is a straight stitch machine and she runs really well and fast now that she has been serviced.

Bonnie Hunter of quiltville has this machine. I've seen it on quilt cam.

I love how the machine case has a place for plug ins. She weighs a ton, but even on a tv tray she doesn't shake at the fastest speed.

This machine would love a new home if you live near enough to central Indiana to pick her up locally. I will list her on craigs list for 45.00.

  1. Lucky you to have a talented husband that is supportive of your hobby and can repair your machines! Love the look of that Brother machine. I live too far and I have enough machines already. Hope you find a good home for her (him?), lol!

  2. A very pretty machine. Hope you can find her a good home.

  3. Wow, that is a great machine! How wonderful of your hubby to bring it to life and find a new home for it! Thank you so much for linking up with To-Do Tuesday, I'm sorry for my late visit.

  4. Did you ever find a buyer for her? I have her twin and would love to have her. I am really far away, but am willing to pay extra for shipping!
