Thank You for ALL the Birthday Wishes..
I was overwhelmed by the sheer number of Happy Birthdays notes.. I smiled all day!
you saw a BIG box in my hall from my mom
Yep.. this is what was in it!
My old singer sewing machine.
She bought it for me because "I needed it" to go to college
GOTTA love my mom!
When I upgraded I sent it back to her to use.. it's not been used in over 10 yrs. The shipping dept spent a lot of time oiling it yesterday... it is running pretty sweet!
ps... click the photo for a larger image
pps... yes it is a funky minty green color
and look where it is made
I will be putting some Aurifil thread on here ASAP
because I'm IN LOVE with Vespas... and Italy....
I DO BELIEVE I need to come visit the offices in Milan.. you know... for research... wink!
SO, what was YOUR first machine?
(this was actually my 2nd but the first was on European currency)
And the winner of the "Litte Bits" book is Diane P who wrote
"My Grandmother was a seamstress in the Garment District and taught her three daughters to sew and boy! did they sew FAST! My Mother made her own clothes and mine too, as well as slipcovers, curtains, etc. She taught me to sew, but I never was as accurate as she was. I made some clothes, but nothing that could be worn outside the house (think nightgowns...). When I found quilting, I REALLY learned to sew. Matching seams was exciting to me and I'm still always happy when they match up. Thank you for offering to share the "Little Bits" book with us!"
