Typical Murphy’s Law, sit down at my sewing machine to get some sewing done before lunch to have the power go out as I start sewing!
That’s when this beauty becomes more than just for show!
My darling husband gave this to me for my birthday (meaning I chose it and bought it)
It’s a little bit of a bitsa but that is OK. Top and machine are original but drawers are more Art Deco era then the era that the machine was made.
So powers out and I move my computer and lift up the machine from its little hidey hole.
Only to realise that I don’t remember how to thread it!
It takes me till just before the power come back on to get it threaded and sewing right.
But really you can never resist a play with one of these.
So I get sewing on it anyway!
Once the power came back on I did a little google search to see if I really had threaded it properly.
And I discovered that my machine was made in march of 1904!
Right back I go to playing with my amazing piece of turn of the century machinery!
