Since my machine didn't come with a manual and wasn't clearly marked, I had to figure out what model my little singer was. I found a great little guide online, which is sort of like a quiz you take to find out what model your machine is. CLICK HERE if you want to take the quiz.
After taking this, I found my machine is a Featherweight Singer Model 221 made in 1950. It works pretty well, we just need to fix some bugs up a bit. As well as the smell, you know the old, and moldy smell. If you have any suggestions as to how to get rid of this smell, let me know. While I am super excited, I am getting quite frustrated with the problems that need fixing, not sure I am gonna want to pay $100 to get it serviced until I am at my wits end.
Also, we are going to Pasadena, California this Friday for my mom's cousin's wedding. Hoping to check out the vintage shopping as well as a couple famous sites, maybe I will find Audrey Hepburn's star on the walk of fame
