Yesterday when I was sewing, I looked up and I thought . . if someone walked into this room, they’d think “a lot of sewing must happen in here!”
There are two old Singer machines on the table, one old Singer on the counter top and another old Singer in a cabinet on the other side of the room. And the old Bernina 1230 stays out because that’s what I use for binding quilts and anything that needs more than a plain straight stitch.
Poor machines .. they must have thought they were abandoned but hopefully I’ll keep sewing and they’ll all see more use.
I do love the old Singer 301 models. They make a perfect straight stitch. There’s nothing Vince or I can’t fix, they never have to be taken back to a dealer for service and I bought mine when I could find them for $35 or less. That’s a whole lot of fun for $35. I’ve already given one to Nicole and she uses it when she sews. I don’t have a black 301 and I would love to come across one for not too much money but, I need to be getting rid of some of my machines . . not buying more!
I’m pretty lucky (or rather, Vince is pretty lucky) that I prefer the old machines to the new, outrageously expensive models.
