The shuttle rides in a cradle and moves backwards and forwards with a reciprocating motion under the sewing bed (photos eight and nine) and it works in just the same way as the shuttle of a loom, weaving its bottom thread horizontally as the needle weaves its top thread vertically. This simple technology worked so well that Singer manufactured a different family of shuttle machines Models VS1, VS2, VS3, 27, 28, 127 and 128 from the 1880s all the way to the 1960s.We did not restore this lovely antique it will be 150 years old next year! But we did make sure that its running gear operates smoothly. It would be a wonderful addition to any sewing collection and will look lovely displayed in your home. Its small size roughly 14½ inches long, 8½ inches high, and 6½ inches wide allows it to be tucked in anywhere. I know industrial décor is in and the looks of this little machine are more important to many of you than its usefulness, but we do hope youll use it. And we hope it helps you to make lots of beautiful things.
