Vintage SINGER MANUAL Model 1022, 1021 Sewing Machine

Vintage SINGER MANUAL Model 1022, 1021 Sewing Machine - eBay (item 310018200379 end time Feb-26-08 10:06:26 PST)

This vintage manual is marked, "Instruction Manual and Accessories, Full Zig-Zag Sewing Machine, Free-arm Model 1022 or Flat-bed Model 1021 Singer." It was a good model machine I used for years as a professional tailor. There are likely more of them out there ready to give you good service.

The booklet has minor crinkles and age discoloration after all these years. The machine may have been new in the seventies or eighties. I'm guessing the age from the fashion illustrations on a couple pages. (Yes, I had the machine myself, but when I can't say. I got it used. I can sew quite well, but track time? Forget it.)

Do you have this Singer sewing machine? Here's the book for it.

I have that sewing machine, i got it from a lady down the street for free, it allegedly still works great. (I wanna do things the smart way though and prime it for use if it hasnt been used in a while) Are you looking to get rid of it perhaps? I'd love to give it a wonderful home :)

Hi lauren,
If you mean you want the book, sorry, it sold a long time ago. That model sewing machine seems to be an oldie but goodie.
