In 1879, the Singer Company started production of its oscillating shuttle, high arm Improved Family machine for domestic and light industrial sewing. In 1895, the Improved Family machine was mechanically altered and the appearance changed, and so the Singer 15 was born. It was to be the most successful sewing machine design ever. The original Singer 15’s, like all the other early domestic Singer machines came as the usual treadle or cabinet versions or as a hand crank model. Later models were either electric or hand crank machines. Singer started making the 128 about 1912 as an upgrade to the model 28.
