Evidently, I collect sewing machines.
No, not on purpose.
They are like strays.
They just show up at my doorstep,
and I can't let them go unloved.
Meet Jane (as in Jetson.)
She is a 1961 Singer Rocketeer.
Sounds like a do-op group doesn't it?
I cleaned her up and
she stitches like a dream.
she doesn't have her attachments with her.
(Her luggage must have been lost on the flight over.)
She reminds me of the cars from that era-
with the fender for the light.
And check out under the hood.
The spool holder for the top is to the left
of the two that are spring loaded
and pop up when the lid is opened.
To the right is where the attachment discs are inserted
for those snazzy stitches.
Unfortunately (somewhat) this is another cabinet machine.
That makes three cabinet machines
plus the treadle!
I won't share how many cased machines
are living here.
I am running out of room.
I think this weekend,
I will get them all out and
try to figure out which ones can stay
and which ones I need to find homes for.
In the past,
I have sold them to 4H-ers
for $10-$20 depending upon
how much I had into them.
They are great for beginners.
They are inexpensive, and
there aren't a bunch of plastic parts
that can break easily.
I wonder if there is an adoption agency for these???
Until next time,
Nimble Fingers and Even Stitches.
