A while ago I stopped sewing and blogging long enough to show you my sewing machines, here and here. Lately we have been spending a bit of time at our parents’ place doing some spring cleaning and in the process have found some lovely treasures.
Mom let me bring this home to show off to you. It’s so sweet! (and it works too!)
Now I thought this vintage Singer sewing machine was a toy machine. But from I have been reading, it is said to be a “cast iron miniature – a SewHandy – built in the 1950s”. Apparently it was a good machine to learn on with its simple hand crank, real sewing machine needle and the resulting chain stitch. It’s all intact and operable!
Now the one thing I would like to know is how can I clean the surface of the machine without damaging it. It has some marks on it and I am not sure what they are. What should I use to clean it? Obviously I will stay well away from any of the mechanisms – gears, wheels, etc. If anyone can offer any information or stories about this vintage sewing machine, or any other vintage sewing machine, we would love to hear from you!
