    Hello! Today I came home from a quilting class and my DH had purchased this Singer sewing machine for me!! What a surprise! He didn't have any history of the machine and it is in need of repairs, but I think its pretty cool. I have tried to look up the serial number (B 739053) but cannot find info on that specific number. Can any of you help me out? Here are a couple of pictures:

    I think she's pretty :)

    I'm not sure what this label is about...do you think it was refinished at some point?

    She IS pretty! What a nice DH to think of you! I hope you can get her running if not she'll be a nice sight in your sewing room. They don't make them so pretty now days....

    Very nice! If your fabric store doesn't carry belts, ebay does. You buy a 72" and cut it to fit your machine. I've heard sewing the ends with dental floss works well. Mine doesn't need replacing yet so I haven't tried.
