I've done a little of the detailing on the latest barn as you can see from this photo (if you want to scroll down to my previous post, perhaps you can see just how much as been changed)....
Yesterday I had coffee with one of my friends and shared my tale of woe over my sewing machine issues and she remembered that she had a machine that she never uses (she much prefers handing her sewing needs over to me because she's pretty hopeless when it comes to any sort of machines). She offered to let me try her machine and, if it worked, we could discuss a price). Of course it was in the case when she gave it to me so I wasn't sure what was inside but when I picked it up my heart did a little flip because I thought that maybe.....just maybe....it might be a Singer Featherweight. And it was!! And even better? It works! She hadn't used it for a number of years and I knew it likely needed oiling and luckily I have some. Of course it won't do anything but straight stitch (no zig zag or free motion capabilities) but it sews!
See how beautiful she is???.....
An internet search with the model number
yielded the information that this little
beauty was made in December of 1951.
- Alas, there's no instructions for THIS, but it's worth seeing! A John Deere diaper tractor....fun.
- THIS falls under the category of 'what will they think of next'!
- If you happen to be searching for a good site that gives multiple suggestions for substituting available yarns for discontinued yarns, have a look at THIS one.
- Have a look at the work from THIS artist! (scroll down)
- There are several ideas HERE for fabric storage.
