    Here is a picture of what came with it. I am not certain if they are all there but I am so thankful that there are attachments that have come with it. It even has it's little oil can!

    B Lizzie - You have a really nice 99K. Have you checked the year? What is the serial number?

    It doesn't need much of a clean up, just watch my videos to see how easy it is. Otherwise, PM me to tell me where you live, and if you are within an easy distance of here, you put the kettle on and lay on the cake and I'll get my hands grubby and have it sparkling in no time.

    It is far too good a machine not to use, it is a very reliable model. I get loads of use from my 99K. I'm sure you will like my Diamond Jubilee wall hanging which I posted a few days ago on the sticky thread Quilts Made Using Vintage Machines - for that I used my 99K and did the quilting on my 15K treadle.

    Your family have certainly taken a pounding in the past. For my family the hard times were in the 19th century and we got through the 20th pretty lightly. Can't say the same for my husband's family, he's an English born Pole.

    Glad you enjoyed hearing about Mary's machine. We have a young friend called Lily, she's 9, and she loves using Mary's machine when she gets the chance - it's wonderful to watch her, she's a natural.

    Hi Muv,

    yes it is a lovely 99K and it was born on the 6th July 1946 at Kilbowie, Clydebank, Scotland. The machine itself needs to be cleaned up and polished and it will look lovely afterwards. I need to figure out how to restore the lid to the box and the box as these have shown wear in them.

    Yes I saw that post earlier on and I am hoping to try this lovely machine out after we are settled with the move etc. I hope to post my creations on there in the near future.

    Once we are nicely settled, you are more than welcome to come and visit, not to get your hands grubby (unless I get hopelessly overwhelmed) and I'll have the kettle boiling and cake at the ready!

    You know, now that I have dipped my hand into this by accident, I am so hooked up on the machines that everything about them is new fodder! It is such an addiction! Thank you for pointing me in the direction of your videos. I most certainly will have a look at them. Any help is gratefully accepted. Thank you so much.

    Congrats on your find! I, too, never thought about sewing machines missing during the war. You have a lovely machine!

    I just watched an episode (episode 3) of the Korean Drama "Fashion King" where they used a similar machine.
    Go in about 14 minutes on this link to see it in use.

    Thank you. I only know about the war and missing machines because my mother told me the story a few years before she died. I wanted to try and buy a machine then for her to try out when she came to visit but it was beyond my budget at the time so she never has had the opportunity to use one. Never mind, at least we now have a part of history and for that, I am thankful.

    Cheers!

    Thank you and thank you for the link. I watched the video and saw the machine. Lovely. To think that they are still using it in Korea! Wow! I hope you do find one in a garage sale which is where you could possibly find one cheaper than what is advertised on the internet on various websites? Good luck!

    Best wishes
