Just had to share a couple of photos of the lovely Singer 99 I bought yesterday in a local charity store. She is in lovely condition, all decals intact, and more importantly has her original instruction book, tool kit and set of feet – hadn’t ever thought about using a ruffler, under braider, quilter or hemmer, let alone a tuckmarker or five-stitch pleater, but hey, I try to keep an open mind on these things.
I wasn’t sure of her exact date but the lovely folks at Singer have a serial number checker on their website, machine-serial-numbers link here. I was able to accurately date this little beauty to 1939.
Test run will be taking place here in the Fens this weekend. Happy retro sewing! brocobelle
