Look what I bought this weekend at a local antique shop!!!! I have always wanted to have a little collection of antique sewing machines and this is my very first one. She is a hand crank machine. We are thinking its from the 1930s-1940s. It might even be older. I have to do a bit of research to get the date of it. Under the machine, the woman who owned it put a piece of local newspaper under the machine. It is dated 1945!!!! I'm sooooooo excited!! Nothing seems seized up on it, so it might work. I will take it to a guy here in town who knows how to clean them up properly and see if it works. The bobbin is in the shape of a bullet! I have never seen one like it before. I love the case it came in too. Its in fantastic condition!!

My new baby!

Very cool! :thumbup: Congratulations!! You can contact Singer with the serial # and they can tell you when it was made. I contacted them and they sent me the date mine was made and the manual. Enjoy it!!!

But there are many more. Is this a Featherweight? I know they have their own websites as it is a specialized collecting field.
