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.

Re: My New Baby! Isn't She beautiful!!!!

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)

Mine is ALSO a 66, but not w/the fancy detailing. Also electric. Would love to read your updates w/getting it running, especially how noisy it might be. My mom learned to sew on our 66 and she said she remembers it shaking a lot. Do you have a pic that shows the table too? I'm curious if it looks like the one I have!

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