A Great Big Thank You Singer!

8:01:00 AM

Let me tell you about one of the best gifts I've ever received in my life...

In 1976 I got this Singer sewing machine from my old boyfriend.
(Chris, if you were ever good for anything... it was this)

I think it cost about $75 bucks back then... 
which was a small fortune at the time I'm sure...

 ...and let me tell you...
this little machine probably has over 100,000 miles on it.

 Over the past 30+ years... I've used this sewing machine for 
everything from making bathing suits when I was a teenager 
(can you even imagine?)

to curtains, slipcovers and pillows for my first few apartments. 
I've made zillions of little dresses for my 4 daughters (xoxoxo), and countless crafts, gifts, and home decor for my house and family over the years.

 ...and the best part... it has not needed even 5 minutes of maintenance!

 I did lose the pedal once but someone I knew had an old one and it fit! Lucky Day!

There are guide marks drawn on the surface that helped me through many a project...
and so...
I just want to say "Thanks little buddy" for sticking with me through the years and being truly a friend I could hang with!

  1. Oh my goodness..I cannot believe your sewing machine has lasted that long! I don't think they make them that great anymore. Haha! But I love my Singer too, even though its only a couple years old. Hope I get that much mileage out of it!

  2. Once I almost bought a fancy one but then wondered if I'd every make anything different than I do already with my "oldie".... so I kept mine :)
