White sewing machines dating
Without an owner’s manual, it was at first a challenge to figure out how to achieve various stitch options, but within just a few brief minutes I was able to determine that changing stitch length and switching from straight to zigzag stitch options was as easy as adjusting the dial on the base of the machine and the levers on the front panel.
In no time at all, I was able to get this treadle sewing machine to perform every possible stitch combination any electric zigzag sewing machine is capable of rendering.
If you ask me, I think this vintage machine is not only good for the advanced or intermediate home sewer, it is good for the beginner as well.
This vintage White sewing machine produces some of the most well defined stitches I have seen in a very long time.
Then again, well defined, sturdy yet delicate stitchwork is a standard when it comes to vintage sewing machines.
Although there was no owner’s manual to guide us through the process, winding the bobbin and threading this vintage sewing machine was quite easy.
Unlike newer sewing machines, there are no arrows or numerical guides to help the user thread the machine or wind the bobbin.
