View Full Version : Vintage Singer 185K

My MIL passed away 4 weeks ago and I have been given her sewing machine. Just found the time to take a look at it and find it is a Singer 185K made in bonny Scotland. She told me a few months ago that the machine was still working but needs a good service. Whilst it is a basic model, it will be a true pleasure to use it. Can't wait to get her to the service man! I just need a name for her.

Since it's a "Singer" why not name it after your favorite singer?

I have a Singer 185 and just love it. Is yours green? She makes such sweet perfect stitches and just hums right along. Sturdy too--I have hemmed jeans on her. You are lucky to have it!
