So I named this antique sewing machine because all of my other sewing machines are named. So I named it after a name from that era in the 1940s.

We believe this Antique Singer Sewing Machine is from 1946.

Speaking of naming your sewing machine, did you know that June 29th is Name Your Sewing Machine Day.

Rosie had all kinds of things inside it (drawer and the stool) which included: Old spools of thread, two pairs of pinking shears, a grommet tool, old hand fans, the original manual book, presser feet, bobbins, needles, a pattern and so much more. (Continue reading to learn why the name Rosie)

Since my two other Sewing Machines are guy names, The Masked Bandit & Brother Stitch, I needed a female name. Rosie was selected since she was an influencer of the 1940s and this sewing machine dates to the late 1940s.

I choose Rosie because of Rosie the Riveter, who was a media icon that was associated with female defense workers during World War II. Since the 1940s, Rosie the Riveter has stood as a symbol for women in the workforce and for women’s independence.

Who is Rosie the Riveter

Rosie the Riveter is a cultural icon that represents the American women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II, many of whom were previously homemakers. The character first appeared in a song called “Rosie the Riveter” written by Redd Evans and John Jacob Loeb in 1942, which was then popularized in a poster by artist J. Howard Miller.

The poster features a woman wearing a red and white polka-dot bandana and blue coveralls, with the famous slogan “We Can Do It!” displayed above her. The image was used as a recruitment tool for women to join the war effort by taking on traditionally male-dominated jobs in factories and shipyards, and has since become an iconic symbol of female empowerment and patriotism.

The real-life “Rosies” worked in a wide range of industries, including aircraft factories, shipyards, and munitions plants, producing the essential supplies needed to support the war effort. Many of these women faced significant challenges and discrimination in the workplace, but their contributions helped to pave the way for greater gender equality and opportunities for women in the workforce.

This Antique Singer Sewing Machine was given to me by my mother-in-love and stepfather-in-love. They got it cheap they said at an estate sale for $10.

Plus there was so much more! Even some pocket change!

I was told it works, well at least runs. I have not tested to see if it sews just yet. I might try it one day. But it is a cool piece.

I kept looking at these at local thrift shops to me, however most them are asking very high prices for them. They got one very cheap! Most weren’t as old as this one.

My stepfather-in-love also told me he oiled it too!

Rosie sews! She needs work the stitches aren’t tight and all. Might need some adjustments. Here is is 2023, she’s a 1946, 77 years old!
