I Just Could not Leave Her Behind!

Posted on Updated on

A friend of mine is permanently relocating to another state. She had an Estate Sale recently and while I was browsing I spotted a sewing machine case on the driveway. The case was quite dirty and appeared to have been stored, probably in a shed, for quite a while. The price tag was $5.00. I peeked inside the case and the machine looked fairly clean. For five dollars, how could I leave such a pretty, unloved machine behind? After all she’s PINK!



I brought her home, cleaned and oiled her, and found out that she runs just like new. Sadly, she has only one cam, but it is for the zigzag stitch, so I am happy about that. I can do all the fancy stitches I need on my Brother machines. My internet search tells me that she came into being around the late 80’s, but I cannot seem to find her serial number anywhere, not even on the Singer site. Oh well, she is pretty, runs well, and did I say it? PINK! (Oh, and I love the little heart drawn on the side of her base!)

If you know anything interesting about the Singer Merritt 2404, leave me a comment. I would love to learn more about her.

Until Next Time,

    Congratulations, Toni – your Pink is lovely! 🙂 It’s a nice rotary machine that takes standard Singer flat fashion disks – they come up on eBay all the time. You can download the manual from the Singer site here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals/search, just enter 2404 in the box. The manual also shows where to find the serial number, so unless yours had been filed off, it should be there still. 🙂
