Singer Model 20 Sewing Machine

November 13, 2011

I recently received a Singer Model 20 from my Husband’s Grandmother… I spent a little time oiling and cleaning it this afternoon and got it up and stitching again.

The Singer Model 20 was a childs “toy” machine, but it does a remarkably lovely stitch.  I have experience sewing on a variety of household machines, as well as industrial equipment… I have not used a sewing machine that does not use a bobbin – like this one!

I am absolutely obsessed with this little machine! I thought, who else to share it with than the people of Sew Retro? 🙂 I have a short video of the sewing machine in action over on my blog.

  1. Great that you got it going again. Did you receive the clamp with it? It original
    came with a clamp for the base. You of course can use it with out but it frees the left hand up. I have two of these baby singers, they are great! I display mine in my laundry room , because of the size and it reminds me of the old schedule , Monday wash day, then there was a mending day somewhere in the week. Enjoy it.
