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 machine  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 🙂

    • That’s exactly how I feel! With my Singer I couldn’t stitch very fast because it would start shaking (all plastic). I’m excited to see what I can do with this

  1. Wow that machine is freaking awesome, it reminds me of the one my mother had all the years I was growing up. They sure don’t make them like that anymore! Bummer on your bike btw, what kind of tool would steal a front tire?

  2. Hey! Just cruising through your stuff and realized that we have the same sewing machine! My cabinet is different (doesn’t have drawers), but came with the same manual and gadgets. I’ve only been sewing for a year, so it’s my first machine and I love it. Got it from a woman who got it as a wedding gift from a great aunt who recieved it as a wedding gift. Neither bride ever used it. Best $50 I’ve spent. These machines are beasts! Great site. Love the garments.
