Rated 4.26/5 based on 879 customer reviews

We often are asked for sewing machine parts to fit a Singer F1234567.the problem is this long number is the serial number and we need the machine model number to help with parts, feet, needles etc.There is a long propounded myth that the Singer Company can pinpoint the very day of manufacture of its machines. The date given as a "birthdate" is simply the day on which vast batches of serial numbers were released to the various factories.

The manufacture dating provided here on our Web site is reproduced from the original Company register number log books.Because of the many technological changes Singer introduced over the years, examining the serial number on any Singer will reveal the time period in which the machine was produced.To identify and date your sewing machine, look up the serial number on a chart like the free one in this article.Because we have not been able to locate the log books, serial numbers for the years 1851 to 1870 are not available at this time.Serial numbers on Singer sewing machines manufactured prior to 1900 are numbers only.
