Contest : Name My New Find!

As promised, here are some pics of my new find. I think she's beautiful even though she needs a good cleaning! I haven't figured out how to do that without harming the gold on her yet, but I will.

I need help naming her, so I'm gonna run a contest! It'll run until May 1st and I'm asking everyone to help me name my machine! I'll let hubby draw a name from a hat on May 1st and the winning name will win a goodie box filled with all sorts of different things from me!

So - On with the contest and Good Luck to everyone!

What a great find! My husbands grandfather had bought me this exact sewing machine in a table about 10 years ago. It still had the little sewing box and owners manuel with it. It is such a treasure.

Sorry though that I am brain dead right now, and have no suggestions for a name.

What a great find! I love the old machines. They're practically indestructible.

I think an old machine should have an old name (my opinion). The first one that came to mind was Mabel.

How about Hazel Singer...My Great Aunt and mom collect these and have/had them all over the house when I was growing up, Now that my Aunt is gone Mom has all of hers.

Hey Tammy, can you put more than one name in? I mean, can you enter more than once? I'm usually a ham with names and I thought I might try for more than one.

Anyway, I guess mine is:

Miss Goldie Treadwell

(well, she's got gold trim, and she's descended from the treadle type sewing machines, right?)

What a great find...
as for a name, how's about "Molly" Machine...Molly the Dolly sewing machine.....ok, kinda goofy, but Molly is the first thing that poped into my head when I saw it..."Molly" sounds so pioneer womanish,,,strong & takes care of business yet still ever so feminan...& we know that our pioneer forrunners were the mainsaty of the family.
Enjoy your wonderful machine & have fun giving her that special name.

Since she is a beauty, how about Princess Sindi Singer Sewer?
She is a beauty. It reminds me of a sewing machine my Mother sewed on when I was a child.
