I brought this baby home with me from my mom's last weekend. It is the 1949 Singer that she bought when she was newly married. It was nine years old at that time. It is the same machine that I learned to sew on for the very first time in the mid 1970's. It had been sitting in her garage for a couple of decades, so she happily gave it to me when I asked if it was still around.
According to this serial number, it is a 15-91.
It's not worth much on the resale market and it weighs a ton!
But look how lovely her case is...
and the rest of her parts look great as well.
She sews perfectly and seems to be in excellent shape.
Her little light bulb still works!
After doing a little research online, I also discovered that her manual is still available.
I think I should order this just in case. I also found this little bit of information...
If I follow this advice, I might never sew again.
Still, it makes for great entertainment!
I'll have to show my mom, she'll think its hysterical.
Enjoy every stitch!
