sewing machine


Group,
Well, my daughter just finished a drawstring skirt with a ruffle! It turned
out great-she is wearing it to school tomorrow.
I am suffering from sewing machine envy. It sews so smoothly and has a
satisfying heavy duty sound. It is also very fast-I'd forgotten how nice it
is to make a seam so quickly.
Thanks for the encouragement.
Sue
and did I mention that it is pink?1 :)

She will become addicted if its pink.....my first machine I got a garage sale for $15 and it was a pink and purple singer, it looked like a treadle but was electric. I don't know what I ever did with it, and I have never seen another one like it, I wish I still had it!

Oh no!It is that lovely 1950's pink.That shade of pink that looks like pink and flesh tone mixed. There is a woman in our small town who has a truck that she had painted the same color. I think that is what drew us to this machine. We love to see that truck, and now we have an appliance the same color. Sue

Back in the 50s-70s a LOT Of appliances came in weird colors and sewing machines were no exception. Kenmore, Brother, Morse and others used colors like yellow, orange, red, green.....and of course pink. =20

It is GREAT that your daughter has gotten into it! There is nothing like a reliable machine for a beginner, and the old ones are so much better than the dept. store plastic wonders. It is great that the two of you are enjoying the machine and the sewing!

Congratulations to both of you - there is so much pride in making something that you wear. Hope it's the first of many items.

Congratulations to you and your daughter! I am glad another of our young people have been "bitten by the bug of sewing." It is something that can be so enjoyable when done with another person. I had a dear friend(now deceased) and we would meet once-twice weekly at one of our homes, when our DHs had evening shifts, and sew while chatting. It was surprising how much we accomplished in those few hours. Emily
