well done you i wouldliketo find this on a throw out....soozie
WOW!!! This is great! You may have found a pricy item, if the right person saw it. Hugs, Judy
A lot of the old machines didn't have model numbers, they went by either serial numbers or bobbin types. It is a beauty though.
I can't find a model number but I did find a number underneath. It might be a serial number. I don't know
How beautiful this machine is! I remember my mom having an old one something like this, and she used to sew our clothes on it. So glad you could rescue her! It's a pity, but I think a lot of people don't realize that older things are 'worth' something, not necessarily in money. If it's not the latest and greatest, and they no longer want it, they assume nobody does. My late brother was like that, he used to say, "Why would anybody want my junk?" I used to tell him that perhaps his "junk" was something somebody could never afford, and would be glad to get as a donation or at a yard sale. I can't believe what that boy used to put in garbage bags on the curb, drove me crazy! But then, like most sewists, I'm a hoarder. And these old things have such history, kinda like me, hee hee hee. I'm so glad you get to give her a good home! Hugs, Marji
wow, what a find. Looks like you have a real little treasure now! Enjoy!!!
what a find!!!!!!! it must have been meant for YOU!
Wow! It reminds me of someone discarding an old kitty cat - How could they?!?
I'd be trying to think of a name for her! How about Suzannah since she'll be humming?!? I'll bet others have a good suggestion for her.
It looksd just like the one my first husband got me in 1960. I do not understand people throwing away things that are still useable.
What a wonderful 'find'; you are blessed!
What a beauty, you got lucky and so did it!
What a wonderful find. I also have an old Singer machine which I never use but would not dream of throwing it away. Well done.
What a great find!
We have become such a throw away society. Whoever threw it away had no idea what they had. Their loss is your gain and I'm glad you were able to save it from the dump.
Looks just like my old Singer which I will not throw away but never use.
I have a foot paddle sewing machine that was purchased by my best friends mother-in-law in 1917, its still in the sewing cabinet and I have the book, and all the attachments. the only thing is my hubby lost the little bobbins, they look like bullets. Its a t.Eaton company machine...
that oval gold plate looks a lot like a Singer logo.
Did you google it?
It's a little beauty!! I wonder what stories it has to tell.
Wow!!! that is gorgeous. what a great find.
Great find! Hugs Sally
A neat little treasure you happened on. Have fun figuring out all that it can do.
A treasure You just can not kill those machines. They sew great. Can't figure out why someone would throw it out instead of donating it to someone who does not have a machine and could use it. I know Nancy Zemen has a link on her site where to send machines . they donate them to woman who have nothing so they can have a living sewing. Suzanne
There where 3 other machines there. One did not have a cord, and another did not owork, its cord would not work for the one without. The third I donated to a local thrift store that helps the local womans crisis center to sell. I've done this a few times. But this one is my baby.
This is such a pretty machine. If you go to the Quilting Board and type vintage machines in the search box you may find out more about it. You may have to join or sign up but it is free and very interesting.
thank you, got lost on this site, stayed over an hour. fascinating. i am also a quilter. betty
Where did you find this? Did someone set it out on the curb? Their loss is your gain, it's a beautiful machine
Wow - beautiful.
It is Beautiful! I have looked at several in Antique Stores (out of curiosity), but they charge a mint! Enjoy it!
WOW, Lucky you!!! Some of these machines are worth quite a bit, take it to your sewing machine dealer, he can let you know...terrific find, congrats!!
Some people have no sense of nostalgia. I guess we can't save everything...even if we'd like to...or like some of us...try to!
I do my best to save vintage articles that's why we needed a bigger house. :-)
My Son calls it Hoarding, I call it Collecting, Hubby calls it Saving for a rainy day. LOLOLOL!!!!!
But I do seem to have trouble saying "No" to anything as old as me, sometimes even older. hahahahahaha
These old machines are collector's items. I can't understand people. We really are in a "throwaway" era. From nappies, to dishcloths, no wonder there are so many "throwaway" husbands!!
wow, what a find. looks like the machine is right were it should be.enjoy!!!
Good onyer! You might like to check out the link below.
Thats it!! :)
Love the iron work and gold paint decorations on it.
wow, it's beautiful, good for you!
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh looks like the first machine I used.
My momma sewed me many dresses when I was little on a machine that looked just like that. Its beautiful!
These machines made the best gathering stitches of all! She's beautiful!
That looks like a "clone" of a Singer model 15. Chances are, if you could locate a manual for the Singer 15, it would give you enough information to oil, thread, etc.
While looking on line I found several references to clone and Singer 15-90. They look like this machine. Most I've ssen on e-bay are in really rough shape, so I did find a treasure!
