|Vintage Singer No 36806 Needle Threader|
I picked up an adorable little Singer Model 99 in a bentwood case at a garage sale yesterday. These little darlings are near and dear to my heart because my very first restoration was a 99 that I accidentally bought a few years ago. I say accidentally because the internet post was for a $10 sewing table. They never mentioned that a machine was inside....
|Vintage Centennial Singer Model 99|
Since then, I have restored, serviced, and in some cases sold about 4 dozen machines (or maybe more, I stopped keeping track). "Susie" will always stay with me. She's my go-to machine for every day quilting\piecing. And when I acquire more Model 99's, she gets all the best accessories handed down to her. In this circumstance - the Vintage Singer No 36806 Needle Threader.
Hunting for information, I found very little. One pamplet was in German....but the pictures helped!
When I put my glasses on - I see that there is half of a hook on here.
First, let's get that screw out
Removed on of the little hooks from the key ring and screwed it in place
Now let's take it for a test run...
Now that needle hole was SERIOUSLY easy to find with this...didn't even need my glasses!
Loop the thread behind....oh boy - that was easy to hook on there.....
Oh I am officially in LOVE with my new toy!!
