Not Bad for 60 Years Old

Remember a couple of months ago I was given a 1953 Singer Model 15-91? I was so excited, I immediately started cleaning her, took her wires off as they were dangerously frayed. I knew the light worked but was afraid to try to sew on her.

The cabinet need to be refinished. In south-eastern Virginia we have had no Spring. Just an extended winter. I have waited months to work on this machine.

The machine was filthy. I don’t know how many years it was in the garage or basement.

Last week I was determined to work on stripping the cabinet. Not my best work, but not my worst either.

I’ve cleaned and oiled and lubed, and polished. She looks pretty good to me! I had to rewire the foot pedal and a new plug, but Woo Hoo she works.

She has a stool, that is next to get restored.
