Can anyone give me any information on an old singer sewing machine which I've
come across?  Near the shuttle it says "patanted 1886" and it's serial number
is 16155056, it has on it what looks like the paperclip design - I think!  I'm
looking for an instruction manual on it too.  I'd appreciate any info.

Hi Kate!!

Yeah, just finished a new Cotehardie, out of a pale yellow/cream
colored silk/linen blend , lovely fabric.. round neck, straight
sleeves with a bit of wide flower trim down the front and braid around
the neck and cuffs, and using leather thongs as tie closures..   If I
ever get  a picture of it I will post it for you.. almost all hand
sewn.. 50 - 60 hours worth of stitching.. Now I have to make some
brown wool braes to go with it.. cut on the bias so they will fit onto
my legs..

I shall love to see that!  Sounds great!  As for the breas, they sound
good too.  Bias cut is nice, coz it has built in stretch, and it doesn't
fray so much.  Just be sure to use a stretchy stitch!  there's a lovely
one the vikings used for theirs, if I can just find the reference...
Saw it in action, as it were, when I was teaching and had a pair of
Vikings in school for the day.  We'd been reading Rosemary Sutcliffe's
Dragon Slayer.

Some of this might help:

I'll keep looking, but one of my favourite sites has gone away!

 Serial no. indicates it was manufactured between 1892 and 1899. Would
need a full description or a photo to identify the model.

The decal set doesn't seem to go with the rest of the description, unless it
was a repaint. The paperclips go with the 201 which is from a later era.
Look here to try to recognize the decals:
http://www.needlebar.com/singdecs/index.html , and here for help identifying
the model: http://www.needlebar.com/#singer .  Once you know for sure what
model it is finding a manual will be no problem. Many are online for free on
various websites, and if you cant find it for free many people sell copies.
Originals are also available from numerous sources, as well as eBay. Let me
know when you figure out what you have, and I can try to point you to a site
that has your specific manual.
