My "Newest" Singer

  I just have to show you my latest little Singer sewing machine.  I don't know if sewing machines 'find' anybody else, but they just seem to be drawn to me (as opposed to the other way around:) 
My pictures are a little off today - please excuse.
Well, this sweet little gem came to me pretty dirty.  It is the size of a featherweight and in the cabinet.  The handles on the cabinet are not original, but it is in overall good shape.  Rather than the foot pedal or treadle, it has the knee pedal - which I admit, this is the first one I have that way.  In case you didn't know, you can go on the singer website here and follow the prompts to date your machine.  They will even print out a certificate with your name and the serial number of your machine on it.  This one was made in 1910.  Now, I need to do this with a couple others.

I just have to show you a couple of the before shots - you know before the half of container of q-tips and alcohol and soap and water etc.
Yes, I know the hammer is down in the photo - I was working with the tension; the tension plates were stuck shut!  After I cleaned it, the stitches were perfect!  I can't wait to actually make something with it.  If you have a Singer, I would love to know what you are stitching on.


  1. Thanks for entering my give away and I am thrilled that you have been following since..#498! Ha love that!

  2. Wonderful machine, thank you for your recent visit to my blog, I love old Singers and have my Mom's Featherweight from the early 1950's, thanks so much for sharing. Hugs Marilou

  3. I have a vintage Singer- pistachio green. It is a heavy beast. But I love it. I can't use it right now because I need to find a place to perform a little TLC on it. I just can't bring myself to buy a new, plastic one! I love yours! Art and functional!
