Unfortunately, I have discovered that there isn’t a lot of information out there on my old Singer sewing machine.
What I do know is that it is a Singer K-series: K619639. These machines were manufactured in Elizabethport, NJ from 1902-1903. I haven’t had any luck finding replacement parts or a manual, but I haven’t given up on that. You never know what you might come across on eBay.
Even if we are unable to restore this sewing machine to good working condition, it is such a wonderful piece of history to have in our home. The kids and I have very much enjoyed ‘playing’ with it, and seeing the old treadle foot pedal propel the machine.
I can’t imagine ever parting with it, and I am extremely grateful that my dear husband knows just how to make this girl happy.
