Way back in May, I posted about my sewing space. Within that post I mentioned my Vintage Singer Sewing Machine and that I didn't know much about it, let alone the age of the machine.
Well, through the wonder that is this lovely little sewing blog universe, I've found out. A couple of weeks ago I received an email from a lady called Marion Knight (hi Marion, thanks for getting in touch!) saying that she thought it might be a Singer 128k and that if I could read the serial number I should check it out on www.singerco.com. And I've done just that!
According to the Singer website, using the serial number, I've identified that it was manufactured in 1936! I can hardly believe that my machine is 77 years old!
Upon finding this out, I done a little more researching and found that it is a 28K model with an allotted date of 10th December and 15000 being produced (all this info was found here!). That seems like a lot to have been mass produced for that date and when I look at those around it on that site, I noticed that the others were produced in much lower quantities.
I wonder how many of these are still about?
