I've been doing some research on vintage Singer sewing machines that were used to stitch Reeded and Un-Reeded sweatbands into golden era hats. I love working on vintage hats, but any time that I have a project, I always find that I can redo a good portion of the hat by hand, except for the sweatband. I would love to buy one of these vintage machines so that I could possibly cut and fabricate my own wide sweatbands and duplicate some of the same stitching used in the early 20th century. I've found some pictures of early Singer Sewing machines and obviously there are probably later models that were used to stitch sweatbands, I just haven't found the numbers and pictures of the later ones yet. If anybody has any more pictures, information, etc about these vintage Millinery Singers, please post them here. I think this will be a very valuable thread for anybody that wants to learn a little more about the machines that helped make those early hats that we all know and love. Singer 46-100 & 46-101 (Used for un-reeded sweatbands which were sewn right to the felt) Singer 107-1 (Used for Reeded sweatbands which attached the sweatbands reed tape to the felt itself and was usually visible under the ribbon) Singer 107-2 (Also used for Reeded sweatbands. This is a slightly later model) I was also able to find a website that lists thousands of Singer Model numbers for every purpose under the sun. Singer Sewing Machines for Manufacturing Purposes Here is the list from the Millinery section of the website: HATS, MILLINERY (Singer Sewing Machines) (List Published in 1926) Over-edging brims: 81-2 Multiple stitching, brims and crowns: 52-52 to 52-60, 52-62 Stitching (straw): 117-2, 25-56 Stitching paper linings: 107-1 Binding (felt): 59-1 Snapping binding: 116-1 Sweat bands: 107-1, 75-1, 46-100, 37-10, 37-3, 32-62, 32-61 Cases, leather: 78-1, 43-4, 19-12, 19-10, 17-24 Making linings: 24-57 Tacking bands and bows: 114-21 Wiring: 112-1 Abutting and stitching (ribbon, straw braid and Pyroxylin braid): 112-3 Like I said before, there are more models out there for the purposes listed, but because this list was dated 1926, these are the models that were used to create my favorite type of hats, those beautiful pre-1930 hats.
