I found her in the hospice thrift shop in Madison. She was awfully cute and looked to be in good shape. She even had her key that works to keep her case together. So she came home with me.
Ok, let's quit calling her "she" because it's getting annoying.
I took my new-to-me Singer to the shop to get tuned up and cleaned and I was told that it was manufactured between 1947 and 1949. No fancy stitches, just a straight stitch.
What I find intriguing is imagining the previous owner sewing and thinking of some of the projects that were constructed on this machine.
I plan to load it up with white or off-white thread and use it to piece quilts.
Oh! and I called it an addition to the family because this is my sixth sewing machine. Yikes, does that make it a collection?
