    Pretty Blue Sewmor Machine

    Well, I have tried real hard to quit buying sewing machines but I haven't quite succeeded yet. My son just purchased a rather large house with a big storage area and he has given me permission to use it for my sewing machines as my own house is getting way too crowded. I saw this one at a yard sale for $10. She is such a pretty blue now but will sparkle when I get her all cleaned up. The case needs a bit of repair which I believe my DH can do for me. We will also have to do some rewiring but we are getting to be quite good at that. Because of the rewiring that needs to be done I do not know if it even runs or not but I figure the pedal and the foot is worth $10. I have faith, though, that the motor will run just fine when we get it fixed. I thought you all might like to see pictures of her. I love looking at pictures of everyone's vintage sewing machines.

    Oh a Sewmor 606, I got one of those. Nice machines, though I haven't used my very much. Just enough to make sure it works actually. The front side mounted thread spool pin is a different approach. On the one hand I like it, on the other hand it does limit the size of the thread spool.
    Mine's the same pretty blue too.

    I know that one is nice - it will clean up and be a good one. I know where Joe got his... LOL

    Blackberry that is a beautiful machine, I would have bought her too. What a wonderful son you have, more storage space, lucky you!
    Never met a scrap of fabric or vintage sewing machine I didn't like!
    Many a lost and lonely vintage machine has found a home with me, 26 and------ uh oh lost count.

    That would work very well in my Singer treadle cabinet.

    It will be a beauty after a spa treatment. I love the blue machines.
