Awesome Antique Singer Sewing Sign


Check out this gorgeous present my mom gave me for my birthday!!!

It's glorious.

It's a vintage tin Singer Sewing litho sign.

I did some research on this beauty. There weren't many clues but I came to the conclusion it was made before 1928 because the company that made the sign shut down that year.  I compared the machine, which I believe is a Singer model 66K. Judging by the hair and clothes of the girl in the logo it's probably from about 1905, which means it's not only super cool but also super old.

Turns out it was a calendar. The little arms on the front would hold the calendar parts.

I was thinking I could duplicate the calendar pages and have it be a calendar again but I have an even cooler use for it: It's a magnet board. It's tin so the magnets stick right to it. That way I don't have to use any tape or mess with it's finish at all. It's perfect.

I've decided to keep my project ideas on there. It hangs on the wall right above my Singer Slant-O-Matic 503A where I can see it when I sew.

I've been collecting odd vintage sewing bits to be magnets. There will be more to come about that. You're going to love it.

"For Every Stitching Operation." Awesome.
