Ok ok you guys have given me the bug too! Had to satisify my curiosity and pull out DH grandmother's sewing machine. Serial # G2319263 So the serial number was issued in 1912 WOW 100 yrs old! Is there a way on singers' web site to find out what model it is and a closer time frame to the actual manufacture date? Yes, bless her heart she's dusty and dirty, I don't have any attachments. I do know, however, that once a little mousie packed her full of dry dog food that turned wormy! LOL That was a job trying to vacuum all of that out of her. I'm saving her for a winter project this winter. I'd like to clean her up, oil her and get her running again. I've named her Samantha after DH's grandmother.
