This is my new friend. Isn’t she cute?! She is 33 years old and hasn’t been used in a long, long time.
A very dear friend from work, Nurse Janet, gave her to me!! The sewing machine belonged to her mother who passed away a while back and neither her, nor her sisters sew or will ever use it. Heartbreaking, I know. So, it was me who became the lucky recipient!! I am so incredibly grateful and honored that she found me deserving of this beautiful little treasure.
I promise to take good care of her and sew with her often. She will be the back-up machine I never had. Plus, I think I will teach Super E to sew on this. He is very intrigued by all of the stitching disks and knee pedal, as am I.
She lives in a beautiful maple cabinet that has been placed in a nice spot in my living room. I think I will have to make a quilted wall hanging to cover that piece of bare wall above her. We fired her up the other day and she makes the sweetest, “tickity, tickity, tickity, tickity” sound, along with a horrid screeching sound too. She definitely needs a good cleaning and some oil and then I will test her out again in depth. Anyone out there have/ever had one of these? Is it a good machine? We’ll have to see what kind of sewing relationship we have together. Hopefully it’s a good one.
