Singer Sewing Machine Tables, Cabinets, Cases and Treadle Stands (2022)

Since the beginning of sewing machines, they have been mounted in a variety of wooden tables and cabinets, or into portable cases. This page is a guide to some of the Singer woodwork and treadle stands that has been produced over the years.

When the first Singer Model A was introduced, its packing case doubled as a table upon which it was mounted. Most early full size machines were normally operated by treadle mechanisms. The machines were therefore set on wooden tables mounted onto cast iron treadle stands, or into cabinets which included the treadle. Later as smaller 3/4 size machines were introduced powered by hand cranks, they were mounted in portable cases.

To distinguish between the variety of table or cabinet styles, and also the different wood finishes available, a 5 letter Ref Code was introduced. Where known, these codes are shown after the type of wood in the table below.

Singer Treadle Stands

For the first 60 or 70 years of sewing machine history, before electric motor drive became normal, most domestic sewing machines were operated by treadle mechanisms. The sewing machines were mounted onto wooden tables which sat on cast iron stands supporting the treadle mechanism. This page is a guide to some of the Singer treadle stands that were produced over the years.
