This is my very exciting acquisition - a vintage Singer sewing machine. It was sitting in the guestroom when we stayed with Mummy and Daddy over New Year and I was allowed to bring it home. To say I am over the moon is putting it mildly, I think it is an incredibly wonderful thing. I did a little research at sewmuse and from the serial number: Y6390437, found that my machine was made in Kilbowie, Clydebank, Scotland in 1929. Wow, it's 80 years old. The serial number was in a batch of 4,000 alloted on January 9th 1929 and the class/model number is 16K.
My gorgeous machine works but is fairly dusty as you can see. As it is her birthday in two days time I will give her a lovely dust and polish and then do a little stitching with her, I can hardly wait!
