Thrift Haul - Vintage sewing machine

Look what i found! - An absolutely beautiful all metal immaculate Brother sewing machine. It is early electric, Model 601. Anyone got an idea how old it might be. Can't seem to find any info on it.


In all her retro pale blue loveliness.


Even the cover is fabulous.

  3. Oh that is gorgeous indeed Thriftbee and the handle is really different. I think its the 70's too as we used something very similar in Secondary school. Where did you discover it?

  5. When I saw this beauty I was immediately reminded of the Brother machines in my home economics class. That would be the *ahem* 1970's. What a great find. I especially like the case. The new machines with fancy computers attachments kind of scare me. Just forward & back. Maybe a zig zag. What more do you need?

  6. Love the colour.
    Saw a singer at the weekend in a second hand furniture place and was tempted.
    What will you make I wonder?

  7. Very pretty! And made to last in that era, no electronic gizmos to go wrong. Even the base and the case are prettier and more durable than the modern ones. Ahh, old stuff. It's the good stuff!

  10. Beautiful machine, looks in great condition. I am wondering if it might be a 1960s model because from memory there were no machines set in a timber base from the 1960s onwards, they were all plastic (at least here in Australia). My 1964 Singer came in a plastic base and case.
