This was made for a few challenges. National _ Day. In honor of June 13th- National Sewing Machine Day! Mixed Media, Pick-a-technique.
I fell in love with sewing when I was 6 years old. From then on, it became my passion. I took every type of sewing classes, even Tailoring in High School. I got a degree in Fashion design. Taught sewing classes at The Fabric Gallery. Then, seamstress at The Theatre Company sewing costumes.
Through it all… I fell in love with sewing machines. My first machine was a 1974 Elna Super. Which I still LOVE and use today, as my go to machine.
But, I never owned a Singer Featherweight. The little black one…
Until one Saturday in July, 2013. I drove Stephen to work and saw a Estate Sale Sign. My car went there on it’s own… Then I saw it, she was gorgeous!!! It looked like the owner had received it as a wedding present in 1951, maybe used it a few times. I felt that $350 was not a bad price for the shape she was in, so I bought it!
So, now I had one!!! Not a month later, a co-worker said that a little old lady in their church quilting club was selling her’s. Same year but, not in as good of shape…. I said I would not pay more than $250. So, I now have TWO!!
