Today I am launching a service to identify Singer sewing machines. (pre-electric models only)
You can see the details HERE
This morning at 7am I received yet another message via this blog containing a serial number of a Vintage Singer Sewing machine.
Literally this is the entire content of that message:
"My serial # is ********"
That was it, not... "hi, I wonder if you can help" not ... "I can't find out any information about my machine" ... and no "please" or "thank you"
You know what, I make my kids ask me again if they haven't asked nicely the first time. *stern face*
I have given all the resources I use in THIS POST
I currently spend about an hour a week looking out information for these machines from all over the world, I have become quite the expert, and I find the work intriguing. But it eats away at time with my kids, time DIYing and time sewing on the machine that brought me here.
While I am typing this post another message flashes up on my screen "I have machine ********"
So I am launching a service where I will do the identification for a small fee in line with the amount of time I spend looking for the information. Prices vary from £3.50 to £20
Much as I hate to turn people down asking for help I must have identified over 100 machines now and I think it is fair to be asking for compensation for my hard work.
