Singer Sewing Machines from Gilbert Toys (1963)

A dealer advertisement from 1963 for the “Sewhandy” Singer Sewing Machines toy line from The A. C. Gilbert Company.

The “Sewhandy” Electric (model #14325) was powered by a 115-volt electric motor. The metal machine came with a carry-case for storage and a sewing kit that included material, patterns, thread, appliques, and instructions for making a clothing bag.

The “Sewhandy” (model #14323) had all the features of its more expensive counterpart but was manually operated. The included sewing kit swapped in instructions for making an apron.
