    Toy Singer (Model 20?) and another treasure find, but how to thread???

    Took my hubby antique looking today, but I was the one who walked out with more "stuff." Now after oiling the toy machine, it really turns well, but I'm not sure how to thread it properly and what the needle size is supposed to be. The other treasure just made me smile...it is a music box...and plays "I Remember Yesterday, Yesterday." Will look neat in my sewing room. Any help about the toy Singer would be appreciated. No book or instructions with it. Thanks for looking. Name:  miniature toy machine 004.JPG

    The one on the left looks like a salesman's sampler. I have one and enjoy it so much.

    So do you have an instruction book or any information about it? Does it sew??? There are numbered points to thread the tread that is embossed on the metal, but I'm not sure how to put it through the tension disks and if it threads left to right or right to left.

    Those are two precious finds. Would love to have both of them in my sewing room too. The toy is so small it makes the spool of thread look like a roll of toilet paper.

    I was looking around and found this on ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Antique-1914...80885771034%26

    If you scroll down and look at the picture on the box you can get an idea how it is threaded. The Singer website may be of help too.

    These are NOT salesman's samples...

    The Singer Model 20 is a toy meant for young children. It makes a fully functional chain stitch. It was available in handcrank and electric versions.

    PM me for a copy of the manual.
