"Singer" or "Antiques"

Antique SingerMy mom ever year swears that she will refrain from buying fabric that year. She said the same thing this year. Obviously she said nothing about sewing machines!

She and my dad were at a thrift shop just to see what they could see. While roaming my dad saw this antique Singer being dropped off and brought my mom over to look at it. Of course they promptly snapped it up and my mom has happily spent the rest of the evening researching online whatever she can find out about it.

Mom researching It seems to be in pretty good condition though it lacks a power supply. She's been searching trying to find something that will actually plug into it.

So far she figures it between 1938 and 1941... there were three models of it...one was a hand crank, one was a treadle and one was electrical. I look at it and wonder what things it has made and for whom. Somebody must've splurged and bought the electric model. I wonder if she brought people over to ooh and aah over it.

And now it's sitting on my folks pool table. NEAT
