It’s All Bonnie Hunter’s Fault

I started with two treadle sewing machines that double as bedside tables. My sister gave me a Singer hand crank machine. Several years ago my husband gave me a Featherweight. If you follow Bonnie Hunter’s blog then you have seen her coveted sewing machine collection. Ebay can be a dangerous thing if you LOVE sewing machines.

I keep saying “this is it, no more”, but I think I’m lying to myself. I have a 1941 Singer 221 Featherweight, a 1951 Singer 301a Slant Needle Longbed, a 1958 Singer 404 Slant Needle, and a 1969 Singer 237 Fashion Mate. I guess old Singer sewing machines make my stitches sing (chortle chortle). Not to mention two treadles, one hand crank, and then on to my love of Baby Locks…….

      I sew on the four in the pictures. I just got the 1958 Singer 404 back from my sewing machine guy today. It came from South Dakota and looked like it had sat in an attic for forty years. I just got the Singer 301a yesterday and it sews like a dream. I love the way the old machines sew, the stitches are perfect!
