Submit an Entry: Singer Sewing Machine Owners Voice Their Experiences

By Betty L. Wallace

What Model Singer Sewing Machine You Own/Owned?

I own a Singer 306 Swingneedle machine

How you obtained the machine? (gift, bought new, etc)

Bought new in Hamilton, NY

Approximate age of the machine

Purchased in 1955

Approximate price paid for this machine?


What type of sewing you did/do with this machine?

All types of clothing for my children, formal dresses for school dances, etc. Clothes for myself. Mostly girls clothes. Curains and drapes. Used a lot. My biggest problem now is they've discontinues making needles for the 306. My machine is in excellent condition and still does a great job sewing but I'm in need of size 11 and 14 needles. Also did quite a bit of decorative stitching with the different stitch discs. Square dance dresses.

What is your satisfaction level with this machine?

It has been a good serviceable machine and still is. Very satisfied.

There reallly isn't much more to be said about this machine except that it has been a good machine, has needed very little matenance. I oiled it and kept it in good running condition. It has been moved all up and down the East coast as my husband was in the AF 24 years and it servived many moves.
