    Found a nice Singer 99K today for 39.50. She was made in Feb. 1955. Came with some attachments. Can anyone tell me what they are for?

    Top left, ruffler, top right, hemmer, middle bottom bias tape sewer. Not the exact names, but that is what they do. I don't know the other two.

    I need to look at my manual for my featherweight as it has instructions for use of each of them. Not at home right now.
    The first is a ruffler, the second a rolled edge hemmer, the first on the bottom row I think is for binding, don't know about the next one and can't remember the last one.

    Thank you for information. Now I need to learn how to use them. The hemmer and ruffler sound interesting for making my new DGD baby outfits.

    Your machine looks just like mine - which I also got from a thrift shop for the same price as yours. Good to see I didn't overpay :D , but I didn't get any attachments :(

    Thanks for posting a picture of your sewing machine. Now I know what I have. It was my mom's and she has passed away and I never asked her exactly how old the machine was. It is my only machine and it works great. It's the only machine I know how to work! I am a new quilter and am looking to buy a new one. You are lucky to have found one, they work beautifully. I'll never give mine up.
