Vintage Singer Sewing Machine at Bambers

The vintage Singer sewing machine is enjoying something of a revival in popularity. Certainly, the old black and gold models such as the 66k and 201k are becoming increasingly popular and especially with younger people.

The Singer 201k for example was made by the thousand and they weighed an absolute ton. However, once we fit a modern YDK motor they fly like a bird. Their weight also means that they can sew through many layers of thick fabrics.

For an old straight stitch Singer, they are very smooth and a delight to sew with.
We are slowly building up a stock of these old Singers – we used to have dozens and dozens of them. Once they have taken a turn around our workshop and been fully serviced and had a new motor fitted, they will be available for sale.

If you’d like to enquire about one of our vintage Singer sewing machines, please phone or email.
