Check the handwheel. If it is pulled out, the clutch is not engaged. Try pushing it in! (It would be really nice if the solution is this easy!)

My grandmother left me this machine. I'm trying to find out if its worth anything. Excellent condition original cabinet.


you didn't mention the name and model number of the machine, so my suggestion is to look on ebay and see if you can find one that looks like the machine you have.

How long is sewing thread good for


As long as sewing thread is kept in a dry place - often a biscuit tin or one that has held confectionary is used - then it should remain in good condition for a very long time. I have cotton which is probably 30 years old, and some inherited reels which could be up to 50 years old and which are still in perfect condition.

Serial Number AF652997 Grandmothers old peddle Singer. Any idea on the model and date?


Hi! Oh, I just love old Singers! If you wanted, it would be fairly easy to get your grandmother's machine up and running again. . . .Talk about saving energy! (Plus the workout is great!)
Anyway, back to your question: Serial number AF652997 was made sometime around 1935 - 1938 at Singer's Elizabethport factory. To find out the model, you can email Singer at TalkToUs@SingerCo.com or call them at 1-800-4-Singer. They've always been very helpful.
Happy Sewing!!
