1920’s PICTURES MADE ON A SINGER MACHINE

I have three pictures from the 1920’s made by Singer Sewing Machines when my father won them in a contest when he worked there.  As far as I know, the only other ones in this category made by a sewing machine in the USA  are in Arizona.  I was told this by an appraiser in England who wanted to buy them but would not give me a price since he was a potential buyer.

History: 
Obtained in 1928. My father was an employee of Singer Sewing Machine. I understand Singer had contests where contenders followed a pattern, sort of like paint by number type, using a Singer machine. Then the pictures would be given as prizes. There are only my three pictures in the US with exception of someone in Arizona. Others are found in London. I have a potential buyer in London but I have no idea how to value these pictures
