Threaded View
i spent the weekend in NY cleaning out my notMIL's attic (oh,
bad 70s flashbacks with the clothes we were sorting! more
polyester than i *ever* want to see again).
 amongst the ruins of many years of stuff put away to deal
with later, i found a sewing machine. it's a White Domestic
(813-7 molded into the bottom). it's had an electric motor
added, but it can run by treadle (if i had the treadle bits).
it's dark brown with gold decoration.
 the obvious missing bits are bobbin case, cover for the
bobbin, & the electic cord. i can't find a make/model plate on
it.
 where can i find info on this beast? i'd like to fix it up if
possible, otherwise it's a doorstop :)

I just found a Domestic Rotary Sewing Machine also I stopped at a yard
sale to look at a bedroom set for my daughter. And went to browse the free
section of the yard sale and there it sat. Got it home and plugged it in
this morning and it still runs. my stomp on bottom of machine is 813-2
and my serial number is 179-2164. it folds down into its cabinet and the
door in front of the knee bar swings back to hold the table that flips out
up.  It still has the user manual, and assecorie box and a white button
hole attachment but the manual does not state what model the machine is.
So trust me I feel your pain I have spent probably about 10 hours trying
to find out what model mine is

Pain mixed with joy, though.
