  2. My childhood sewing machine

    Well, she is now clean and oiled. The cabinet is in great condition, so all I did was oil it. She is a 1917 Singer Red Eye model 66-1. Motorized by my dad, and will take a little time and effort to track down the missing parts of the treadle frame. Anyway, here she is.

    Her name is Lydia.

  7. My Janome 1600p arrived today

    Have been waiting less than patiently since we got to Florida for my new-to-me Janome 1600p to arrive. She came today, while I was out shopping for fusible thread. She is beautiful, and I think her name is Lydia, for my aunt Lydia who could sew like a dream. I still remember when Mom tried to make a reversible wool coat. One side was leopard--this was the 60's. She got stuck, packed it up in a box, sent it to Lydia to try to turn the lapels correctly. It came back all done, including buttons ...

Did pack together in gallon bags the fabrics and patterns for current WIP's, some of which are for groups on this board.

    To everyone frustrated by the new look of the board, please ...
