I Love Vintage Sewing Machines!

As those who know me, I love vintage sewing machines.  I am the proud owner of a few Singer machines.  I found this site that shows an historical film of the Singer Sewing Machine factory in Scotland.
Imagine working in that factory.  It would have been hard work.  I have my little Singer Class./Model 99 made in Clydebank Scotland on Dec 13, 1923.  I paid more for this little gem than any of my other vintage machines, but she is so worth it.  She is a small version of the standard machine & bigger than the Featherweight model.

Here's a sneak peak at my current quilt project.  Migraine headache is putting me behind, but I will get this done!


  1. This looks so much like my Mom's sewing machine. I remember it worked very well.

  2. My Mom had a full sized black Singer in the wooden box. No reverse on it either. That's what I learned to sew on. Now, I love finding and sewing on these beauties.
