Which vintage Singer sewing machine is best?

For a straight stitch machine, I’d recommend a Singer 99, Singer 66, or Singer 15, as they’re all relatively common, easy to service yourself, easy to find parts for, and easy to use.

Why is blind stitch appropriate as hemming stitch?

The sewer catches only a few threads of the fabric each time the needle is pulled through the fabric, which means that the majority of the stitching is hidden inside the hem. Blind stitching is useful when joining two folded edges together, as the thread is only visible when the folded material is pulled away.
