My Singer (K-series) Sewing Machine


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.

I love it! Sooooo beautiful! I just complete my first sewing project, and this sweet Singer is such an inspiration. I love history, and I wish we could find out more about it! You'll have to keep me updated! Hope ya'll had a great weekend!

Gosh, I wish you'd found more about it, but thanks for sharing and PICTURES, too! :D

I wonder if it would be easier to find here in NJ....IdK; a gem like this is hard to find anywhere, I imagine.

This website tells you when yours was made and how many were made and when it was made. pretty much it just tells you how valuable it is. they lost all the documents to the k series through the war so that's why you can't find replacement parts

My mum just gave me a full functioning machine exactly like this & my brother polished it up & it still has its manual in the draw. I was looking it up & came across your blog
