Collecting Singer Sewing Machines
Did you know…? That Singer sewing machines were first manufactured in 1851? Collecting Antique Singer Sewing Machines is a serious business, where style of machine, manufacture date, and condition are all-important. The small, portable, and just-darn-cute Featherweight Styles are particularly sought after and highly collectable. In order to determine the vintage, look to the serial numbers on Singer sewing machines. If manufactured prior to 1900 you will find numbers only. After 1900, the machine serial numbers have a single or two-letter prefix.
