Check out this beauty!

We spent another enjoyable afternoon and evening working in the garage restoring and testing antique sewing machines. Check out this beautiful Singer 115 full rotary sewing machine. I think this is the nicest machine we've ever come across...the decals are near perfect and it's very shiny:

Check out the shine on this awesome machine:

These are called 'wing' decals - it's even made in Canada!

The end plate is in mint condition:

I did some test sewing on it, working on a queen sized One Block Wonder quilt! With machines like this, we don't consider this work at all - it is all play getting these pretty old machines back in working order.

Gorgeous machine!
I'd love to have a treadle someday. They are lovely, too.

My goodness! What a beauty! The original owner must have not enjoyed this machine...but someone else surely will:)

Beautiful! I have a 115 but it's not in anything near that good condition but it works. It's wonderful to see what it looked like when it was new.
