Somebody Loves Me!

My husband went away for the weekend, to go surfing, and came back with this vintage lovely for me. I saw this machineĀ  and cabinet a few weeks ago in a little sewing and vacuum repair shop in Newport, OR and fell in lust. The guy that owned the shop was very knowledgable and talked with us for a quite a bit. I even dropped my serger off to him to get serviced since I haven’t been able to use it yet.

I’ve been wanting to upgrade to a solid workhorse and I think this fits the bill. This machine is all metal, and has just the stitches I need. The machine was barely used and all of the accesseries and owner’s manuals were included. The buttonholer is even still in plastic.

The cabinet is great as well! I can drop my machine all the way down and use it as a table top for cutting fabric. The machine can also sit even with the desktop for an extra large work surface. It also can sit above the cabinet so I can use the free arm. Every drawer includes thread holders. I’m so stoked!

This makes up for the fact that tweakers stole the front wheel off of my bicycle last night. I had to figure out how to get me and my significantly less portable bike home last night at 1 AM. Anyways, I’m going to go play with my machine now :)
