Vintage Singer 457 ‘Stylist’ Sewing Machine



A beautiful example complete with original book and accessories – even the original singer screwdriver!  The carry case has some cracks on the handle but is still functional.  The original packaging for the spare needles and oil are also present although have been used many years ago. 

The machine comes with a new foot control and power lead and has had bevel gears replaced so is now in tip top condition and I can offer a 3 month warranty on this machine. 

This machine has been serviced and is now ready to give someone a great deal of sewing pleasure, a sturdy and reliable machine which will keep you sewing for years to come.  It comes with the raised foot plate to cover the feed dogs for free machine stitching. 

The Singer 457 ‘Stylist’ sewing machines was one of a new generation of domestic sewing machines when it was introduced in 1969. The 457 Stylist was finished in a trendy beige colour and was of a much sleeker appearance than the old ‘black’ Singer’s which had been the standard almost since sewing machines were invented well over 100 years earlier. Although it still retained a metal body the top cover, spool pin, controls backplate etc. were all made of plastic. The 457K’s motor was integrated inside the machine with a toothed belt drive.

The machine provided a built-in facilities for zig-zag, blind stitching and using twin needles. The 457K ‘Stylist’ used a brown version of the rectangular plastic foot pedal speed controller which had already been a Singer standard design for some years. [replaced on this machine for a safe new one]

A feature of the 457 Stylist was that it had a quick release needle plate which was released when the bobbin cover plate was slide fully open. The standard needle plate could then be replaced with a slightly raised alternative plate to allow free motion work embroidery etc. without the feed dogs engaging the fabric.
