Oh,it´s a lovely old "Singer" machine!
My mom has a Singer that's older than I am. Many of my childhood frocks (and hers) were made on that machine including a red and white "Little Bo Peep" outfit with a red, lace decorated bonnet for my dance recital. Her's is electric, though. I bet using yours takes some practice, and dexterity.(P.S.My verification "word" today is "aseam" -- LOL!)
Ah! A Singer handcrank! One of my guild members brings hers to our quilting get togethers...and I must say I've begun to lust after it! I was wondering what this was in the background of your photos. Thanks!
Wonderful old faithful! My Mum always used hers, she made all our clothes when we were little.
I recently bought a singer treadle machine which I need to work on to get working - it is quite wonderful and apart from a bit of decoration missing from one of the drawers in intact (including a leather drive belt).
