"New to Me" Sewing Machine

I found this sewing machine for $15 dollars at an estate sale over the weekend. Boy it was a mess, but after a good cleaning, she is as good as new. She has been well loved. I plugged her in and turned her on and she purrs like a kitten. Lovely.

She is a Singer 6234.

I cant seem to find out her age. according to the Singer website, LOL, she is a 1900. That cannot be right. This is according to the serial number which only has one letter in the front and it is an N. From the looks of her I am thinking perhaps a 90's machine.

If anyone owns one of these, let me know. I have some questions about where to get parts for it. It only came with one bobbin and it has a crack in it. Learning to fill the bobbin on this machine was quite interesting. I have never had a drop in bobbin machine.

We will have so much fun working together, I am sure.

  1. I have had some issues lately with the Singer site. About a year and a half ago, they had serial number PDF's that you could down load. Now the site is almost useless. Never the less, nice find!
