No fancy stuff here. This is a Singer 301 ‘Featherweight’ (ha! It weighs 16 pounds!) and was my Grandma Willoughby’s sewing machine. It was made in the 1950s and has TWO stitches, front and back…which is all I needed to fix Hadleys favorite blanket (made by our dear friend Dianne D 10 years ago for his baby shower!).
I love, love, LOVE to sew…but alas…many other crafts have taken me away from it. There was a day when I’d make my prom dresses. A friend from high school reminded me last weekend that when I wanted a new outfit back then (we’re talkin’ the 70s folks!), I’d MAKE it! Ahhh those were the days. Did I mention I love to sew???!!!
On to other things…I hear a can of black paint calling my name…time to get to work for the shop (Room With A Past) – we are open this next weekend!
