This wonder machine, like all Singers, does the smoothest straight stitching in this wide world — plus hundreds of practical, beautiful finishing stitches — completely automatically!

You’ll take pride and pleasure in watching the Automatic blind-stitch hems, overcast seams. You’ll discover that there’s no end to the lovely decorative stitches you can create to give personal touches to your clothes — the children’s clothes — your home furnishings!

The automatic is the newest of many Singer Sewing Machines, including both Straight-Needle and Slant-Needle models.

Vintage Singer sewing machines: “New for young homemakers” (1959)

The Young Budget Singer

Versatile… even lets you do cording by machine! Easy to use, too. You can whip up things for the family and your home right away.

Variety of cabinets for the Young-Budget Singer. Blonde or walnut finish… and they double as desks… dressing tables. Attractively priced, too.

Buy it portable if space is your problem. Handsome, matching green carrying case takes up no more room than an overnight case. Lightweight, too.

Built to meet the sewing needs of young families… priced to fit the young budget!

Here in one sleek, new Singer Sewing Machine are all the features young homemakers want most:

  • Easy to use — simplified threading — top round bobbin
  • Sleek, new design – new, soft green color
  • Sews beautifully backward and forward
  • Dependable and rugged as only a Singer can be

And its sleek, little price even includes one of the famous Singer Sewing Courses. See it. Sew on it. The machine designed specially for young homemakers — the Young-Budget Singer.

“No wonder more women ask me for a Slant-O-Matic” (1959)

The Slant-O-Matic is the machine with the most know-how-to… from fancy work to re-kneeing boys’ dungarees!

Many women who never sewed before turn out wearables right off! No amateurish, wavering seams… the seam guide is built into the machine. No loop-de-loop stitching… simply dial the tension control. Threading is foolproof… the chart is printed on the machine.

With every Singer Sewing Machine comes the famous Singer Sewing Course. Small groups, individual instruction… it’s the “fun way” to learn a satisfying hobby.

In every price range, Singer has the “most wanted” machines… all givable on the Singer Budget Plan.

Who invented the sewing machine? (1909)

Decorative stitches galore! Use single or double needles. Do overcasting, mending, blind stitching, without attachments.

Singer Slant-Needle design makes it so easy to see and control work. Raise or lower throat plate at the flip of a lever.

Do buttonholes in seconds. Sew on buttons, too! Do all your tedious handwork on the Slant-O-Matic.

Eye-level stitch chart flips up; shows you how to “tune” the knob for the stitch you want. No confusing attachments.

The Sharon Hall Desk Cabinet. Blonde or walnut finish with scratchproof, marproof top.

The Cosmopolitan. Brass-tipped console, stool. Blonde or dark. Charming in any room.

The Ardmore. Sleek, modern, cabinet. Machine detaches from any cabinet for travel.
