Trissie loved to sew and when she was 18 years old she was given a sewing machine for her birthday. This wonderful Singer sewing machine has been looked after by her, then my Mum and then me and works really well. I love to use it and the sound it makes as it sews. I had it serviced a couple of years ago and it was given a tune up and a clean and it's just like new! Incredible for a machine that must be about 100 years old.
I use it all the time when I sew my cushion covers, one day it will be other things, but for now it's cushions. I have called this sewing machine Miss Trissie and I think she would like that.
Both Miss Trissie's sit happily with me in my craft room, one by the window and the other on my desk.
I do use an electric over-locker, which is a whizz of a thing and a new thing for me. Great for finishing off the seams.
One day I would like to try some free-style applique and also work out how to use the different feet that come with it. I must be brave and try them out!
How about you,
Are you using a sewing machine?
have you ever used an old Singer machine?
