    Sewing Machine Survey from 1953

    Found this sewing machine survey in my Fall/Winter 1953-54 Modes Royale Pattern catalog. I want one of each!

    Cool pics of those old machines.

    J Miller and Mrs J Miller want that Singer table and stool in the upper right corner.

    Neat-O!

    I'd take any one of them, but the Singer 301 is still at the top of my list. I was terribly excited when I was looking at a CL ad for "grandma's" sewing machine. First picture was the trapezoid cabinet. Second picture showed a 66 Red Eye in the cabinet. Sigh. Made me wonder who snaffled the 301.
    I have a screw driver and YouTube--I can fix it!

    I love it!! And you'll notice that the ladies are dressed up with every hair in place and makeup applied?
    One day, you'll only be a memory for some people. Do your best to be a good one.

    Funny, I'd never heard of Calenda before this post, now I've seen a CL advertisement for one on eBay.

    OMG that is too cool. I'll take one of each also. I guess those ladies don't sew in their track pants & no makeup LOL.
    Dance like no one is watching

    My mom tried to fix my hair like that one time when I was in elementary school...didn't work very well as my hair was too short and poked out all over. Wouldn't you know it was picture day too!!

    Used similar machines in my HS home ec class.

    Oh, that's how I quilt and sew all the time! ROFL I wear a wig because of very thinning hair. I definitely put it on just to get the sewing started!!!! I feel so sorry for the UPS man when he comes to the door and I am still in my pjs and hairless.
