My New Baby! Isn't She beautiful!!!!
 
Just bought this off craigslist.

Trying to identify her birthdate and then give her a bath. I am going to try holistic home care (aka repair/tune-up myself).

Anyone else bring an old machine back to life? and then do self maintenance? This is my project for the new year.

So pretty! Is it a treadle or electric?

Hubby just bought me a treadle from 1904 for Christmas. I didn't have to put anything into it other than a new belt and a good oiling. It was fully functioning and included all of its original feet and paperwork!!

My photobucket is being wonky for the pic, but you can see it towards the end of the December craft game see and share thread.

Sooooo... she was born June 2, 1910. She is a Singer 66-1 with the "Red-Eye" decal pattern. She is electric with knee pedal. I need to get her a new belt, the wiring actually looks good, so once the belt is on, I will give her a run!!!!!!!!!

(thank you Rdesonia for the links)

That is so neat. Can you believe you are about to sew on a machine that is almost 103 years old???

Nice!!!!! I've come across entire blogs/sites dedicated to restoring vintage Singers. I've got my grandmother's Slantomatic from the late 50's and I thought that was cool LOL! This is a gem. Can't wait to hear how it sews.
