The White 614 - More Vintage Sewing Machine LOVE!


HELP!  My husband is out of control with the vintage sewing machine shopping.  He just loves to shop, for anything, for anybody. Point him in the direction of something you are interested in, and he will find it.  So...I didn't really need this White, but he brought it home anyway.  It is a lovely blue color, and in amazing condition.  I believe it is a 1972 model, barely used.  No scratches. Very clean.  Almost no lint.  I found a free manual for this machine online and went through it. After a little bit of cleaning and maintenance, it is sewing beautifully.  I sewed a little bit on Trent's sleep pants last night with good results.

This machine has three feed dog options, lots of decorative stitches, and can sew with a double needle.  The needle position is adjustable.  Buttonhole stitching is built in.  It came with a few presser feet, the regular foot, a zipper foot, and an open toed foot.  That sounds like a shoe - haha!  

I'm not sure how much I'll be sewing with this machine, but it is a lovely addition to the my collection.  Someday I'll have to have a massive vintage machine sale, I suppose, but for now I'm thankful I have a sewing studio, a storage building out back, and a little log cabin down the road.

Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!

Get Creative!

  2. Your husband sounds just like me! lol
    I bought this same model 614 at a thrift store for $7, and it seems to work great but I don't have a manual for it, and have not been able to find a free copy. Would you mind telling me where you found yours? I have been trying to figure out how to use the button holer, but have not had success. thanks, Aaron

    1. Hello. I am not certain where I found the free download, however, I've done some searching online for you. It may be here, at the Singer site, the W614, but I'm not sure, and I'm not going to download it again, but here's the link for that: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals/search I hope this helps!
