Not Bad For Being 62 Years Old!

Well the ol' girl still has it!

      Yesterday I needed to mend my husband's overalls but my "good" sewing machine has trouble keeping the needle in. So I thought I would try my 1950 Singer Featherweight.

     I wasn't sure how she would go through all that denim, which was already patched, plus there were those extra thick seams to go through. Even with a size 16 needle I was skeptical. There were times when she sounded like that little train. Chug, chug, chug. But you know, SHE DID IT!

      And just like in this 1906 early version of The Little Engine That Could, by golly, she could!

     And, by the way, my husband doesn't wear purple overalls. Cell phones really aren't good for blogging photos.


  1. wow! they just don't make em like they used to.

  2. My 1976 Singer had been a good one. She just needs a new feed dog gear. 30+ years is pretty good, but nothing like the OLD ones.
