    That would be a Singer 128? Cool...

    My first machine is a National Sewing Machine Company Vibrating Shuttle treadle. The "Damascus" name was manufactured for Montgomery Ward. The serial number is 3209025. I don't know exactly in which year it was made. There is no list for NSMCo machines like there is for Singer. I'm guessing in the 1920s.

    My second machine is a Singer 128K Hand Crank, manufactured in Scotland on Feb 2, 1927, serial number Y4467698.

    My third machine is a Singer 221 Featherweight, manufactured in Elizabeth, NJ on January 24, 1940, serial number AF741157

    My fourth machine is a 1973 Viking 64 30, made in Sweden, serial number 4058257. According to Viking, it's 'obsolete'.

    Two more machines that I use for quilting. Top photo is Singer 15-90 with darning foot on. I use that machine for free motion quilting; so, the darning foot is always on and the feed dogs dropped. Second photo is Singer 201K-3 that came with motor that I removed. I use this machine for sewing clothes and straight stitch quilting.

    My first is a Genie 354 (serial number 72042228) I know she was made in France in the early to mid-'70's but can't find any official data as to manufacture (Singer site doesn't recognize anything this new without a letter in front of the number and Genie doesn't have a letter, anywhere). She was a gift from sister for my 16th birthday after she'd taught me to sew that previous summer. She's been through a dozen moves since I first left home for college and has only been overhauled once. Just keeps on keeping on.

    My more recent acquisition is (I think) a 66 from Elizabeth NJ Aug 1915, G4138333. Had her cleaned and checked out by Bob my local (sort of) repair man and she works ;-). I need to find the retaining spring for the bobbin plate. Right now it just slides right off so I'm afraid to do any sewing with her. Found her at an estate sale for so cheap I couldn't walk away without her.

    Here are some pictures of my sweet green Kenmore model 158.650. Made in Japan between 1967 and 1969 I believe. This machine is as clean as a whistle..purrs like a kitten and sews wonderful. I was lucky to find a set of seven cams for it too.

    Oops... double entendre or what? Mint condition AND mint color!

    Isn't it wonderful that so many people are lovingly preserving these machines for future generations? Don't forget to use them! Nothing keeps them running and moving as well as actually using them.
