My Early Christmas Present



I've been wanting and waiting for this machine!  Isn't she pretty?!  She is a 1890 Frister & Rossmann, Manufactured in Germany.  A handcrank with a Transverse Shuttle.



 

It's an early Christmas present from my wonderful husband and I am so thankful and delighted!


The day she arrived, I literally jumped out of my seat when the delivery man rang my doorbell!  Just like the children on Christmas morn running to gather in the living area to open presents!  I was so excited!  She was wrapped and packaged very well!  So much so, that it maybe took me a good 20 minutes to get to her!  Really, I broke out in a sweat!

She runs like a charm!

Until next time....

She is just gorgeous Stacy. Frister and Rossmanns have a wonderful personality and the quality of German machines is up there with the best. Enjoy her :-)

Merry Christmas to you! How exciting, although it looks too complicated for me. LOL Hey, do you have that new grandbaby yet?!

Thank you ladies for your nice comments! I will certainly enjoy this machine! As of 12/12/2009, we're still waiting on the grandbaby! He's late!

I just purchased a transverse shuttle bobbin machine similar to the one in your post here. I am trying to figure out how to get the bobbin thread up where it needs to be. Do you have any tips to help me out??
