These beautiful pieces of sewing history are popular with antiques collectors and sewing enthusiasts alike.Over the following decades, Singer continued developing his improved sewing machine to include the following features: By 1863, the Singer Manufacturing Company held 22 patents and sold 20,000 sewing machines yearly.Within eight years, the yearly sales reached 180,000 sewing machines, which included their New Family machines released for sale in 1865.Singer introduced the model 99 electric sewing machine.It was the first portable electric machine and included a bolted on electric light so that the work was easier to see.It included a chrome-rimmed handwheel and a stitch regulator plate.If you can find one in its original case and with the accessories, it will be worth more than just the machine. These are considered by many collectors to be the best machines that Singer ever produced.The Turtleback was the first machine designed for home use. It had more room under the arm, which made it easier for the seamstress to manipulate large amounts of fabric. Later Class 66 models had a motor and numbered tension dial added.The 66 is easily identified by the "red eye" decals decorating it.Instead of a circular shuttle movement and a horizontally angled needle, the Singer machine used a straight needle that worked vertically.This made it comparatively easy to use and inexpensive to produce, and "Singer" rapidly became a household name in sewing.
