|Vintage Singer Model 24 Chain Stitch Sewing Machine|
I was so intrigued with this little lady! A gentle wipe on the dust revealed perfect hand painted decals. She's so tiny. I wonder where she came from. Who was her first owner? What was she purchased for? The production of the class 24 machines started in 1897 and continued post 1943. Most of which were industrial machines. This is the simplest form of sewing machine; it has neither shuttle or bobbin, no tensions to adjust and the machine is ready for stitching when the needle is threaded. It makes the single thread chain stitch. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm told that it's similar to the stitch across pet food bags. With the pull thread that releases the whole thing.
She came in the smallest treadle cabinet I have every seen.
Lots of cool stuff in the drawers
I love the engravings on the needle plate
