Singer Sewing Machines

I recently went to the Clydebank Museum and Art Gallery in the old Clydebank Townhall to see the Singer exhibition and be there when Museums Galleries Scotland awarded the title of ‘Recognised Collection of National Significance’ to the collected works. The Singer Sewing Machine exhibition represents Clydebank’s industrial heritage: a mix of ship building and sewing machine manufacture.

For more information about the event, the exhibition and the award go to

  2. My brother has a Singer Fashion Mate sewing machine serial number 81851603 and I think it was made in Clydebank, Scotland but I cannot find any information about this machine. Help me if you can find the country of
    origin of its manufacture and date it was made! THANKS SO MUCH!

  3. Hi Dorothy, I’m pretty sure your brother’s machine was made in 1900 but I don’t have any other details. Might be worth contacting the Clydebank Museum and Gallery, they seem to have a massive archive with an enormous amount of information. Good luck.
