    Hi all my Vintage machine groupies...

    Anybody have a link or a guide to the various specialty badges that Singer produced.

    Of course, there's the Centennial in 1951.. .but machines with run dates as early as '48 had that badge too...

    What about dates/info on the badges for Expositions? The New York, the World's Fair, etc.

    It would be nice to know: Names of the badges, descriptions, dates used, which machines (models) were badged with each different badge, Badges for canada and great Britan.

    Also.. .I've seen some with red big S badges. Are those earlier styles or were those also special somehow...

    Thanks all...

    The NeedleBar is about the only one that would have that information in one spot. Look in the PL under Singer

    Well, I signed up for Needlebar a week ago... I've got as far as the intro.... that's it. Can't read topics or post yet. Ah well... I understand that they have to be careful... I mean... really! People like ME might 'get in'! LOL

    I don't need the info just at the moment... but hopefully, in a couple of days. Gosh... I'm so anxious! Like waiting for a new child or something!

    Here I will cheat for you a little bit here. It might take you two months before they let you in. Its getting like a country club setting in which if you dont know someone who knows someone who is their Uncle or Aunt you wont get in. :roll:

    Kinda like the Skull and Bones of Yale.............

    Here is the link..

    http://needlebar.org/cm~nb/thumbnails.php?album=981

    What your looking for is on the second page.

    Heehee... I email their admin when they are slow to approve...

    It's definitely a country club there! But well worth the hassle - it's a wonderful spot filled with detailed, accurate info.

    Also, Vintage Singer Yahoo groups has lots of good info too.

    I dont do Yahoo because they sell your information, and the NB has pretty much blackballed me since I share information here in my Vintage Sewing Machine Shop and not with them. They snatched my Japanese research and now they edit and delete my post. I am waiting for Alan to go on his bi-yearly "its my damn site and I will close it if I want to" and I am going tell him I will buy it from him. And if you look there are only about 12 to 15 folks that even post, and half the time they are trying to stroke his ego. When I joined there were at least 100 or so participating members and 4 years later you have a few more than a dozen. I give it till the summer or less until its closed. I have heard there is a mass exodus going on right now.

    But as always I have the upper hand and I know a few things that he doesnt. :thumbup:

    I'm so glad you posted this site link. In my collection of FW attachments, there was a half circle piece that I could never identify. I now know it's some kind of braider attachment. Have no clue how to use it though.

    Share a pic and we'll let you know if we know. I belong to an attachment yahoo group and it's so fun to guess the attachments. Sometimes the 1/2 circle metals are just feed dog covers. But I'll wait to see your picture...
