Publication: Privately printed, nd (ca 1919), Allentown
First edition. 6" x 9-1/2" sheet folded to 6 panels. Advertisement. Colorful illustrations. The front panel is a picture of a young woman sewing on her Western Electric Portable Sewing Machine. A small inset is a picture of the woman carrying the sewing machine in a case with a handle. The Western Electric Portable Sewing Machine has put a stamp of antiquity on the foot-power machine for all time. It can be attached to any electric light socket and electricity does the hard work rather than the back-breaking treadle. A complete set of attachments is included to easily do such things as binding, tucking, hemming, ruffling, hemstitching and quilting. The four styles of the sewing machine offered are the Vibrator Type, Rotary Type, Automatic Type, and Two Spool. "The Western Electric Portable Sewing Machine can be put away on the closet shelf - for the complete machine, motor and all, is no larger than a typewriter. It can be carried to the work, from room to room, upstairs or down." Very good.
