I would like you all to meet Jim Sorrell. Jim is an original ‘Singer Man’. He still works on Singers and sells some of the old ones. If you would like to see what he has for sale, or if you ever need a part, Jim’s website, Sew-Rite is HERE. Jim and I have known each other since I began collecting and working on sewing machines. He has answered many questions and taught me a lot about sewing machines, and he has always come through when I need a part. He is such a wonderful man and has a kind spirit.
He didn’t disappoint me when I emailed him and asked him if he had a stitch control ‘thingy’ for my ‘new to me’ Singer 403A.
I got the part today, and now she is complete.
I went to My Singer Story and found the birth date for this machine. If you have an older (pre-1970) sewing machine and would like to know when it was ‘born’, check it out. It’s fun! (I just put in Singer 403A where it asked for my first name, and left my last name blank to get it to print Singer 403A.)
I found this old Sewing Book last weekend while junkin’.
I think I got it more because it had an old Singer (I believe it looks like a 301) photo on the introduction pages. I certainly won’t be using this book to learn how to sew garments!
Jim is in Oklahoma. If you need anything, give Jim a call, or email him, and tell him Michelle sent you!
Thank you, Jim!!
