    Great to see another Serata!

    The winner of the quiz on the Mystery Vintage Machine is Vintagemotif, who battled her way to the answer.

    So far it's been all German machines from me. Now I can put the flags out for a machine made in England, hurrah hurrah, the Vickers Modele de Luxe, made by the company that built the Spitfire. The machine was largely copied from a Frister and Rossmann vibrating shuttle, so you can sew in reverse if you ever start to forget that the German designs had the edge over Singer. There's a very interesting history of Vickers machines on the Sewalot website.

    The machine is probably 1920s, but I haven't yet found anywhere I can check the serial number.

    Nice little black leather rings on the spool pins - I think they must be original

    Here are pictures of my Singer 115-G4949815- made in St. Jean Quebec, commissioned as one of 2000, October 20, 1916. It has the Goldwing decals which I just found out today are kinda scarce. It sews like the wind!

    There are nine doors that open up on this cabinet.

    The black pipe at the back houses a powerful spring that allows the machine to go up and down inside the cabinet.

    A lot of silvering and fading of decals on the machine bed especially, but she's still pretty.

    This is my first treadle, a White VS II serial number 1763926, in a Twigs cabinet. Purchased for $90.00 at auction and the auctioneer thought I was crazy to even consider making it work again. It is amazing. I mend denim jeans on her every chance I get!

    The decals on these old machines are just beautiful

    I'm posting a lot of pictures today, but just found this thread and decided to add my little collection. Here are my electric vintage machines, a Singer 221 (Maeve)-1945, a Singer 222K (Fiona)-1957 and my black longbed 301-1951-as yet unnamed.

    See what you all went and did!!!! I spent a couple of days looking at all these wonderful little balck sewing machines and got bit by the bug. I just happened to be in the right place at the right time and this is what I paid 14.99 plus 29.99 shipping for. She was born on August 1, 1921, in Elizabeth, NJ. She is a Singer 128, which is a 3/4 machine. she is in pretty bad shape but won't be when I get my hands on her. She has what is called the La Vincendora decals with a grape vine and leaf motif pressed into the face plate.

    I hope this pic works..

    Here is my newest Featherweight! She is named 'Mary Margo" after her original owner. I paid $125 for the machine, attachments, foot pedal (we have to replace the cracked cord), and the table. There was no case with this machine.

    She was allotted on February 15, 1939 so she has the Egyptian Scrollwork faceplate. The striated face plate (straight line grid) didn't appear until about 1947. Her serial number is AF164873.

    I also added some more of my machines!

    Singer 403A uses cams to change stitch pattern - it has 3 needle positions - left center and right and then zigzag selection - the workings are a lot like the Singer 503 seen above

    Singer 401a) built in zigzag and other decorative stitches
    Singer 403a) needs a top hat to zigzag and do the decorative stitches
    Singer 500) pictured on several pages - built in zigzag - pretty much the same internals - just has a different body than the 401
    Singer 503) also needs a top hat to zigzag - same as 403 inside but has a different body - pictured above
    Singer 404) slant needles - drop in bobbin - straight stitch only weighs about the same as the Singer 301
    Singer 301) pictured on many pages above - very popular machine - has slant needles but straight stitch only. All but the Singer 301 have a drop in bobbin.
    There are some other models of 400 series as well.
    Singer 411G and a Singer 401G. (see page 6) They are ALL excellent machines - precision built for precision sewing.

    Thank you to every one who joined in the Vintage Machine Guessing Game. Here is the machine inside the box, which Dreamboat correctly guessed was a 99K. It has the filigree decals and dates from 1916. The First World War had put an end to German imports, and Singers had "Manufactured in Great Britain" emblazoned on them so people could feel particularly patriotic when buying a sewing machine. Meanwhile, Vickers were manufacturing machine guns....

    Yes it has got a foot - it's safe and sound in the side compartment

    Aaaahh she is wonderful. I am still looking for a 99 hand crank. What a fun little dream machine to have kids or yourself piece on.
