Look What I Found!

 

 

I came across an estate sale on the weekend and decided to have a look around.  I was super excited to find this antique Singer sewing machine.  After bringing it home, I did some looking around in the internet and from what I can tell it is a Singer Model 128 from around 1936.

 

 

The machine has been well loved over the years.  It has lots of minor dings and scratches, but it sews like a dream.  It is amazing how little has changed over the years.  However I did find this manual invaluable when it came to oiling and threading the machine and winding the bobbin.  The machine has only one stitch but it does it beautifully.  Here’s a Sorbetto blouse that I whipped up with it.
