My grandfather had 8 siblings and one of them was Aunty Sadie. She was the most delightful lady. Full of mischief and happiness. When Aunty Sadie passed away I was given this sewing machine by her daughter. I believe it was purchased in the first half of the 20th Century. It needs a little TLC to restore it to its former glory but it still sews a perfect stitch.
The cabinet it sits on was found in my in laws garage in very bad condition. It was my husband’s great grandmothers. Now restored, it sits harmoniously with the machine in my living room.
It is so nice to see something with ‘Manufactured in Great Britain’ etched into the body of the sewing machine.
Does anyone know about this particular model? I would love to hear about your old Singer machines and their histories.
*** Update *** Thanks to my readers providing some handy links, I discovered it was made in the factory Kilbowie, Clydebank, Scotland in 1945.
