1919 Singer Sewing Machine
I found this machine at a barn sale several years ago, for about
$30. The machine was very dirty, the belt was rotten, and the cabinet was
peeling apart. Terry cleaned and fixed it, got it working, and made the
cabinet for me. It is not the original cabinet style, but still fits it
perfectly. According to Singer archives, this machine was made December
24, 1919 in Elizabethtown, NJ. It still looks good!

made. He repainted the treadle, including repainting with gold paint
the Singer name and details on the sides of the treadle.

I am using it and the Kingston
machine to display some quilts. I have too many quilts and need
someplace to put them!

and the ornateness is still there.
