Singer 160 Anniversary Limited Edition

Singer 160 Anniversary Limited Edition Sewing MachineWow! Old meets new in the new Singer 160 Anniversary Limited Edition celebrating 160 years of Singer sewing machines. Sew stylish and worth a mention. This came out early this year for the first time on HSN I believe. I just found out about it yesterday while doing research for a new sewing machine I got!

Pros:
~ It’s a beauty with a stylish nod to the past and slick modern features!
~ Extra-Large Sewing Space – The arm measures 14.7 inches, allowing sewers to easily manage quilts and other large projects.
~ Drop Feed – A conveniently located lever lowers the feed dogs for free-motion embroidery, monograms, and button sewing.

Cons:
~ Expensive! It was originally priced at $599.99.

Price $349.99
Date Issued January 2012

Overall, I like that it’s a beginner-ish machine that tries to do it all. For a hobbyist that might like to try anything from dressmaking/fashion sewing to quilting to craft sewing it does a good job of trying to give some great features for each.

Until recently I sewed on the vintage Singer Treadle 66 seen below which is from the 1920’s. I got a new Singer last year for Christmas so am now learning that one!! Do you have an old Singer Sewing Machine? As part of the celebration they also created a new page for My Singer Story. Go there to enter your story or find out more about your machine!

    1. Thx Sarah! There’s so many beautiful vintage Singers around. Interesting about the bobbin case shape, you don’t still have your machine do you? Would love to see pics. These old Singers have so much history I wished I knew where mine’s been. Anyway, happy sewing!
