Born in the USA in Elizabeth New Jersey on March the 20th 1958. This darling little green lady is a seamstress's dream come true!

From top to bottom this stunning Singer Jadeite Green Goddess has been totally refurbished and rewired from the inside out to her former glory! She runs like a dream and she purrs like a kitten!

The Singer Model 185-J3 is a light to mid-duty dressmaker and general purpose machine and is powered with a foot control. This pretty gal has a shorter bed than the larger models and features straight lock stitch with forward and reverse belt driven gears and the same engine size as the larger machines .6 Amps 110-120 volts and 25 to 75 cycles.

Her factory features include a built-in bobbin winder, a focused intense work light with a lens, and a built in thread cutter.

She'll stitch through light leathers, denim, canvas like butter and all the similar materials as well. She'll carry all size needles between a size 9 to a size 21.

This lovely machine comes with a box of her original attachments including:
Universal Foot for general sewing
Adjustable Binder Foot
French seaming foot
Adjustable binding tape foot
Edge guide
Gathering Foot for for shirring
Adjustable Zipper Foot
3 bobbins and a set of needles
Original instruction manual

This fabulous machine comes in her original protective wooden box complete with scuff marks and a bit of wear and discoloration. "Aye. 'Tis the box that has keep this beauty from ruin!"

For about the same price as a horrible plastic gear modern sewing machines that will spend half it's life in the repair shop, you can have this lovely easy-care all metal treasure instead.

Use it for a lifetime and pass it on to your grandkids.
They don't make 'em like this any more.

We will happily ship this machine anywhere in the Continental US. Due to it's weight and the cost of shipping we regret we cannot ship this machine overseas.
