Description : This artifact is a black, metal sewing machine in a brown, wooden table. The machine is on hinges, allowing one side of the machine to lift out. This provides access to the underside of the machine and also allows it to be folded away into the table when not in use. The machine has many gold decals on it, decorating the machine with images of flowers, vines, and a sphinx. There are five removable drawers in the table. One of these drawers is located at the centre of the front of the table, and has different compartments. The other 4 drawers are different from the centre drawer but identical to each other, with two located on either side of the centre drawer. These four drawers have brass handles. Metal latticework forms the legs of table and the wheels of the machine. The accessory box is made of wood and at the top, opens on hinges into four sections. The inside is lined with purple velvet. It contains various machine parts, bobbins, thread, buttons, and small tools. The two paper instruction booklets have 33 pages each. One is titled "Instructions for Using Singer Sewing Machines 127-3 and 128-3 Lock Stitch, for family use" and the other is "Instruction Book for the Jones Cylinder Shuttle Model D59 Sewing Machine.
Commentaires : Improving on other models he had seen, Isaac Merritt Singer built the first practical domestic sewing machine in 1858. Nineteenth and early twentieth century sewing machines could be operated by a foot treadle for rapid sewing, or by a hand crank for finer control. Many people felt the foot treadle was too 'factory-like,' so ornate, hand-operated machines were developed to appeal to the feminine market. Women in rural Newfoundland made most of their family's clothing and linen, and no scrap of fabric was wasted. Even flour sacks were saved and turned into everything from christening dresses to pillow cases. Sewing machines were a great improvement over hand-sewing, reducing the time and effort required to keep a family clothed.
Fonctions : This machine was used in the home for sewing clothing and bed linens.
