    Default Sphinx decals - are they available?

    I was just gifted two Singer treadles, a 66-1 with Lotus decals, in great working condition and an 1899 Model 27 with Sphinx decals. The 27 belonged to my DH's great-great grandmother but unfortunately sat in a barn for the past 25 years or so. The irons are rusted, but salvageable. The drawers were salvageable, but the rest of the top was too far gone. The machine is in ok shape and after DH cleaned in his parts cleaner, everything is turning freely. However, the decals are totally shot. We want to repaint and would like to put repro Sphinx decals on it. Are they available? Where would I find them?
    TIA

    If you will google Vintage sewing machine decals to buy, you might find them.

    Keeler sales is good source for a variety of Singer decals. They are on eBay along with some other decal resellers. You should carefully read the instructions for applying. Some decals are waterslide, but others are rub off and apply differently.

    Thanks everyone! I will purchase the decals from Keeler Sales! Can't wait to see this elderly lady restored to her former glory!
