Function or Decoration??
I found this little gem at the Restore in Bluffton when Britt and I went shopping for cabinets for my sewing room. Britt happened to mention to one of the guys working there that we were using cabinets for a sewing room. He told me he had a vintage sewing machine, so naturally I wanted to see it. He brought this over, and I knew I had to have it. Britt and I agreed that even if it didn't work, it would be a nice decoration for my sewing room. So I bought it. When my father-in-law came in for Christmas, I asked him to take a look at it. It would make a whirring sound when I hit the foot peddle but not much else. He is handy in all things, so I thought if anyone could get it working, he could. He made a couple of quick adjustments and actually got this beauty running. It still needs some oil and a good cleaning. Then I'd like to find a cabinet for it. I think I'd like to try it to see how it sews. It won't replace my Viking, but it would certainly be a nice complement. I can't wait to use it. Isn't she beautiful??
