One of the things I wanted to do on my recent trip was to drag the Michigan sewing machine out of the closet and check out the model and serial number on it. Since I normally travel with my machine, I don't use this one but that will change. Sewing machines need to be used - it's good for them!
|Singer Model 15-91 with "Eye" & Trefoil decals.|
This machine belonged to my Great Aunt Lillian. It runs, though it can use a cleaning and oiling. There is some built up grunge to carefully remove.
It is a Singer, Model # 15-91, dating to January 1933. She is 71 years young!
Housed in a Model # 47 cabinet, it has a knee controller instead of a foot pedal.
I had planned on bringing the machine home for a thorough going over but it is wired into the cabinet due to the knee controller. I need to do some research on how to remove the machine from the cabinet & not do any damage to the wiring.
Check out that scroll work face plate, though it will be better once it's cleaned and shiny. I have another machine project!
