This is another yard sale find that has made it's way to my house to live. My best friend Carolyn (not the quilt shop owner that I work for who is also named Carolyn ~ which makes for some confusing conversations in my house), and I had gone out on one of our scavenger trips a while back and came across this little guy. Carolyn bought it for $20 thinking it might work well with an old treadle table that she has, but wasn't quite sure. I told her that if she decided not to keep it, I'd buy it from her. She decided to pass it on to me, and now it has this new place of honor in my sewing area. I know nothing of the value of these things, and I haven't even tried it to see if it works yet ~ I'm not even quite sure what I will do with it, but it makes me smile :)
The table it's sitting on is my other old Singer machine that is just like the sewing machine that I sewed on way back in Middle School Home Ec. Class. I got that one from a Freecycler who was passing it on. (If you have never checked out Freecycle, it's well worth it and there are local groups all over the country).
So now with my Great Grandmother's treadle machine, this little electric Singer, and my adolescent Singer I'm getting quite a collection.
Enjoy the day!
