My Singer 66 Treadle Sewing Machine

June 10, 2013 6 comments

Here is my new sewing machine. It’s a 1950 vintage Singer 66 treadle sewing machine. I’ve been on the hunt for a Singer 66 treadle. After searching the internet, eBay, Craig’s list and other vintage sewing machine sites, I finally found this beauty just down the road from me at a yard sale. The sweetest part was that is was only $75.

She’s a Singer 66 treadle in a cabinet some call the schoolhouse cabinet. Apparently this cabinet was used in school home ec classrooms because they were a cheaper model sold by Singer and thus the name. I’m told this machine has the Filigree decals.

I was so excited to find this machine in such great condition. This later model even has reverse which is a real bonus. Plus it came with the original owner’s manual and a box of attachments. It just needed a new belt as the old one was dry rotted and broke. So I oiled it all up and installed a new belt, it was time to test it out.
