Antique Singer

                                                She might be old, but she sure is pretty!







I even sat some stuff on her-of course, I did-it's what I do!

A friend  (Jessie again) gave this lovely machine to me.  She got it free at the end of an estate sale.  She liked it, but didn't really want it because she didn't have a place for it.  But they forced it on her, so she brought the lovely thing home (all 33 pounds of it-yes, I weighed it,  I thought for sure it would be 50 pounds or more-so heavy!) and asked me if I wanted it.  I said yes (although I really don't have a place for it either, but I made a place), so she brought it over the other day.  I have no idea if it works, I didn't try it out, I'm not much for sewing anymore. The wiring does look quite wonky though.  I do know she is a thing of beauty, which will sit on my table to be admired for years to come, I'm sure.  Thank you again, Jessie!

This brings up some sweet memories. My mom had one like this, or close to it, and I used it too. They are lovely machines. Glad this one has a good home with you!

Yes, Jessie found her machine a good home. It looks cute with the pretty threads on it. It's really cool!!

Hi I have my grandmas one of these. I use it all the time and it's great. Makes a nice noise as it goes along. I had mine serviced, it wasn't too expensive and it's all working perfectly. It will go on and on. Maybe you could get it going again? Heather x
