    From Doin-isewman--Singer 1924-26 machine, I'm useing now

    I know I posted pictures of this machine, a while back.. Anyhow, I had a lady quilting friend's husband take this machine, and cleaned it, did some adjusting, and kept it for a day to sew on it, for me. Anyhow, I got it back yesterday, and last night, and this morning I've been sewing the storm out of it. I posted some quilts for my grdkids, I'm makeing for them. here is a block I made on this machine, and pictures of the sewing machine. This machine, is WONDERFUL-FANTASTIC. It sews like its brand new. The pattern of the block is called Ellens star--from --quilterscache.com. Everyone TAKE CARE and WELCOME to the new members Don-isewmanName:  001.JPG

    I am looking at the seams and droll over the fat that they all meet up as they are supposed to. Mine never seem to be that exact.

    Beautiful blocks! Your machine looks exactly like mine (was DMILs) even with the key hanging off the handle with string! I love sewing with it when we are at our cabin in the summer time.

    Nice job, as always, Don. Lucky grandchildren. Your sewing machine looks wonderful. And thanks for the pattern source reference too. Hope you'll post a photo of the finished product.

    My mom has a machine like that only it is in a cabinet. She is 86 and has been using that machine for as long as I can remember. She has never had to have it serviced, took care of any minor problems herself. She still sews on it although she has been given other/newer machines. Hope some day she will let me "take care" of it.

    A beautiful machine. Love the vintage singers. I have one with the same type case, it is a red eye, still works great too.

    Lovely Singer 99, Don... They are wonderful when they are sewing up to their potential. God bless a good sewing machine guy.

    I love that double star block too, tho it looks a bit "fiddly"...
