    Default Vintage children's sewing machines

    I got a Singer model 20 not too long ago and got some before and after pictures. I sure hope they will come up on this post.

    I'm currently trying to figure out how to get her to sew WELL. She does do a chain stitch, but it's nesting underneath, so we'll see.

    Three's the limit, apparently, so let's get some more up.

    Oops, uploaded a little Buddah there. Can't get it to delete. (I took that picture to show my nephew that I still had it after all these years since he gave it to me when he was a kid.)

    I think these may be the last. You may have guessed the first ones were before pictures. I still haven't changed out the felt on the bottom yet.

    Aw, man! How (why) did they turn out upside down?

    Oh well.

    My Mom thinks it's really cute and has offered a place to keep it - in her curio cabinet. I told her I'd like to try to use it, and I thought maybe her granddaughters might like to try it too. She can keep it there when I'm not playing with it, and as long as everyone understood it's mine.

    She is really a cute machine. I must say you did a beautiful job cleaning her up. Hope all goes well getting her to stitch properly.

    Thanks for starting this. I have 3, 2 came to me through the DH side and one I got in a shop. When I get to Christmas break, things are nuts at school, I will try and put up my pics. I don't use them, but love them just the same.

    Here is a picture of my little machine with no wheel. I am looking for the wheel and parts to make it complete. It is so tiny the decals are very nice, and the chrome is cleaning up nicely.
