Welcome to your new home, my mint green sweetheart

We have a new member of the family.  In all her minty green goodness, meet my new sweetheart:

285j

She is a model 285J, and came with 2 manuals.  Kinda funny to me that one of the manuals is for model 285K, which seems like it would be later than the 285J.  She sews like a dream & came with a box full of what-knots & doo-dads from the prior owner’s sewing room.  Not sure how useable those things will be, but it will be fun to go through that box!

Ever wonder about your old machine?  If it’s a Singer, check out the Model # locator & you can also date your machine using the serial #

Minty here was made in Canada in 1963.

I believe we shall ring in the new year together.
