Wow! 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!
~ 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.
~ Expensive! It was originally priced at $599.99.
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!
