So, i had a fabulous find today! There was a garage sale going on in my apartment complex and the lady was selling two antique sewing machines. She wasn't sure if either of them worked, but the one I bought is a 1941 Singer Sewing Machine that comes attached to it's own table, with all of the presser feet and attachments. She also threw in some vintage spools of thread with thread on them and the original bobbins that came with it. I'm seriously contemplating going back tomorrow and getting the other sewing machine which she is selling for $100. It's older, but also beautiful. I'm definitely going to take the one I bought in to have it refurbished but I plugged it in and the light turns on! Yay! There is a short in the wire that prevents it from sewing which was expected seeing how old it is. So that's fine since it's going to the shop anyway.
The absolute best part? I bought it all for $40! Woohoo!
So, I do have a question. As it happens, it did not come with a manual. Does anyone have any idea how to thread this particular machine and how to wind the bobbin? I've seen a manual on ebay but I really don't want to pay that much if someone could just tell me.
Thanks ahead of time!
