    How fun is that!! Did it come with the crinkle as it's original paint?

    Yes, the serial number indicates it's birth date in the original production run of December 5, 1939.

    That machine is so cool! Very tough looking for being so tiny. I thought I was lucky finding a blackside. Happy sewing.

    I don't use this one. However, it does work. Crinkle is a term for the matte black rough textured paint. These do not have the standard decals as do the shiny black finish machines do. These do however have 'ridges' that run the length of the bed on front/rear. They're are rather hard to run across.

    I've read that the fw with the crinkle finish were made for the military.

    Does the "crinkle" have a smooth finish so the fabric can slide? Beautiful machine. I love mine, she was born in 1937.
    We would worry less about what others think of us if we realized how seldom they do.

    I was told in Paducah (by a vendor who always has parts for FWs and english needles etc) that they were made for the military to use during wars. The sun didn't reflect off the finish thus alerting the enemy of our location.

    I didn't realize there was a crinkle FW. I love the crinkle finishes. I have the "godzilla" Singer 128-23, and a White Rotary with a crinkle finish.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    Thanks for sharing pictures. I've never seen one before. I especially like the view behind your machine. It looks like a lovely place to live.

    Thankyou. It is a nice place to escape to, after working in the city all day.
