    My bobbin winder

    Isn't she pretty!



    My Bailey takes class 15 bobbins, and it's a royal pain to use it to wind them, so I've been using the Singer 15. It does a very nice job and I get good, uniform tension. I'll wind about 10 at a time.

    I'll also use this machine for FMQ when needed.

    Here's the big girl - with a quilt my Mom put together near 30 years ago -about time it gets quilted up!

    The quilt is gorgeous. 30 years later and still beautiful - and timeless.

    Great quilt. Love the colors and I am not a blue person, and nice machines. Let us see it when it is all finished.

    This is a wedding quilt for one of my sisters. My Mom had got the idea to make one for each daughter (she had 7) and got this one made, a start on a second and notes and pieces cut for the third. A few of us were already married when Mom started doing this, so Mom started with the next one to get married. Though she gave up quilting and moved to crochet and these got packed away.

    My Mom has advanced Parkinsons now, and family has been cleaning things out of the house. Unfortunately a niece got the old sewing machines, but I recently found out the sister this quilt is for has the old Singer cabinet, and she is giving that to me. If it's the one I remember, it's going to be the new home for the Singer 15.

    I'm an earth tone type person, and blues and whites don't do much for me.
    My name is Cathy - and I'm addicted to old sewing machines and their attachments

    Blue and white quilts are so pretty! I have a Singer 15-90, it has the motor hanging off the back off the machine.
