Attachments


Very commonly, we find old sewing machines with a selection of attachments in the drawers, in an old cardboard box, or in special attachments boxes of tin, or, if we're very lucky, in the Singer folding "puzzle boxes". While fascinating, generally, we have little or no idea of what these items were specifically for or how they worked. Cindy Peters has provided a scan of a complete Singer 27 attachment manual from the turn of the century. This should be helpful in identifying some of those old attachments, or in arranging them in the puzzle box if you have one. Most of the attachments were pretty similar even between brands, so if you have a non-Singer attachment you're wondering about, it's worth a look here. You might be able to recognize it and figure out how it works. We've kept the size large to make it readable, so the download for the page will take awhile. Also, there seems to be two page 9's... don't know why, just is...
