Space Aged

The Young Budgeter, no doubt, required the special machine presser feet to accomplish her every sartorial whim. My MIL chose to purchase only one:





Seriously, I cannot begin to imagine how this is going to work. But very "we can send a man to the moon", yes?

  1. It looks old timey and yet the concept is mind-blowingly high-tech. Good luck!

  2. The color green is so beautiful. I had my grandmother's old Singer machine for years--one of the antique-y-looking black ones that you carried in a wooden dome--and its attachments worked just fine. Good luck!

  3. If nothing else, this is a piece of history and I bet it would be cool just to have it on display!! But, knowing you, I'm sure you'll be using it to work on some of your pieces ASAP :)

  5. Fab: Those 50s women were good with the new tech :-)

    Bel: It's practically steam punk.

    Miss C: I think this is the next generation after the black one. Did yours have a pedal?

    Stacy: It is an amazing piece. But I want this baby to function. I'm too practical to use it as art :-)

    Debi: I LOVE to hear this. If I have issues, you're the one I"m going to call.

  6. I mean, that is just the coolest ever. I use a sewing machine from the 60's ...it's a Singer and it's the best. It's also my mom's ;)

  7. M: Is yours only a straight stitch?

  8. Oooh I didn't even know such a thing existed! I have an old Singer (1930s I think?) that I have yet to use (see previous comment about cushions!) but if this little baby could work with it, me and my Singer might just have a beautiful future together!
