In the meantime Singer started to build a new manufacturing plant to be located in Anderson, South Carolina that would manufacture all slant-needle model sewing machines and was completed in 1950. It passes through point A, a real point of vantage common to both parts.Several years ago, I was given an antique Singer treadle sewing machine that has been passed down through my family for a few generations.But I also wanted to find out the model numberwhich at first I thought would be a far more difficult proposition.
**Notice** I love vintage machines, but am not an expert.

Fortunately, Singer was already planning for their 100th year anniversary with a new sewing machine that was a dramatic departure from the straight stitch machines of that day.
In November 1944 Singer applied for a patent that relates to sewing machines and it has a primary objective to provide an improved sewing machine which will afford better visibility at the stitching point.If your sewing machine does not have a model number, but has a serial number similar in location to the image above, use the images below to help identify the sewing machine model number.The Singer 99k sewing machine is small in size measuring only 12-1/2" wide, this image shows an early version the 99K (99K21 - 26) made between 1924 to 1954. The stitch length was adjusted via a screw and the machine did not stitch backwards.the problem is this long number is the serial number and we need the machine model number to help with parts, feet, needles etc.There is no reference charts available to tell us the exact model number from it's serial number.We sell the majority of those Featherweights on consignment for the owners, and if your Featherweight is in excellent condition we can help you too.
