old lady Singer 15K (what the husband is up to) #1

The husband has got a new project to keep him busy!

While chatting with neighbour the other week, we learned that the neighbour had an old sewing machine under the eaves, that he was going to take to the local tip. He asked us if we wanted it, so I went to investigate (slightly difficult to take photos as it was in amongst lots of other “junk”)..

This is what I found . . . and next photo what interested me most.

Serial number allowed me to identify this machine as a Singer 15K from 1902.   A very dirty and neglected Singer 15K that has seen better days, and we’re not even sure is in working condition, but no way could we let this old lady end her days at the local tip.  So . . . it’ll be coming to our house and the husband is going to have a restoration job to keep him very busy over the coming months.
