160 Years of Singer

It's interesting that my last post was about the history of the sewing machine...then today I was reminded that Singer Sewing Machines is celebrating their 160th year.  They came out with The Singer 160 Limited Edition sewing machine to celebrate the anniversary.  The machine is styled after the vintage Singer Featherweight and some of their other machines, but has all the modern functions.

As I said in my last post, vintage solid metal sewing machines will always be my favorite...but the Singer 160 is beautiful!

Singer has created a neat website where you can share your Singer story.  Along the top is a timeline showing important dates and images from Singer history. 

Fun fact from the timeline- The '68 Elvis Presley Comeback Special was solely sponsored by the Singer Brand!
