I love my Singer 15-91.  She found me at a tag sale in Lake George in 2001.  When I got her home, I went online to Singer – I may have called them, not sure if they had the lookup ability on the web at that time – and looked up the code on the base and found that she was manufactured in 1935 in Elizabeth NJ.  I oiled her, threaded her and was very pleased to learn that she sewed a straighter seam than my brand new piece-o-crap Singer with all it’s lovely plastic gears for which I paid hundreds (actually, RR paid for it, a fact that he will never, ever let me forget, especially while it sits gathering dust in the closet).

She only stitches a straight seam forward and backward (which is an upgrade from my first antique Singer, a 101 – though that one will sew through seven layers of denim) and will only do buttonholes with a huge honkin addon thingy but I would be lost without this machine.  In fact, Stitched by JessaLu wouldn’t be possible without her.

One more bonus shot:

    Very cool! Can’t wait to see the new bags, though there are still a few in there that I want lol.

  2. She’s a beaut! My 1930s vintage “Free” with a shuttle bobbin also sews a straighter seam than my multi-hundred dollar all plastic electronic Singer…newer is not always better. Looks like you’re gonna have some super cute new bags there…hmmm, who do I know that knits? LOL

  3. Gorgeous fabrics. You are so talented! Breathe deeply, tax season is almost over. In one more week it’ll be spring break here and I fully intend on winding up the lovely STR yarn you gave me and selfishly knitting myself some socks.
