    My Latest Acquisition :)

    This was freshly posted on craigslist last night. I emailed them, ran up to look at her today, and brought her home with me. I'm finding that sewing machines are sort of like puppies....if you go looking, something will come home with you. The couple I bought this baby from said that it was her great-great grandmother's and then her great aunt's. They used it as a lamp table and are getting ready to put the house on the market so they are getting rid of some unneeded/unused things. Unfortunately, there were no attachments or manual with her. She is also beltless. Whoever cleaned out the house when the great aunt died must have thrown everything away. There is one shuttle and a bobbin in her. She looks like she's been well cared for - cabinet is in great shape and there is no rust on the machine. According to the serial number, it was one of 60,000 serial numbers released January 2, 1904, and is a class 27.

    Lucky you! I've never seen a Singer cabinet like yours. It is so beautiful. The machine is nice too. I hope you can find a manual online and accessories too. Good luck!

    Thanks the comments! According to the serial number, she is a model 27. I also forgot to mention - I paid $40 for her. They were asking $50 and when I offered $40, they jumped on it. I figure that was probably what they were hoping to get for it. I think the cabinet alone was a steal for $40!!

    How nice to find a cabinet and machine together in such a nice clean condition. Luv, luv, luv the cabinet. I have one almost like it. I am in the process of waiting for the shellac to dry so I can put it back together. Congrats! Know you will enjoy.
