My Old Singer Sewing Machine

Rebecca's post about her Singer Featherweight Sewing Machine made me curious to find out more about my old Singer Sewing Machine. I followed some links, emailed Singer, and in less than 10 minutes, I learned that my machine is Singer Model 99K, manufactured on August 1, 1922 in Clydebank, Scotland.

Singer has a searchable database. Just go to their website, click on Customer Service and then the Serial Number link.

Here are some pictures of my sewing machine.


This is a picture of the carrying case, made of oak.

As you can see, this machine doesn't have a foot pedal, it has a bar that you push with your knee.





It also has a cool Singer Sewlight with a pull chain that was apparently added at a later date.
