Okay...it's a really small collection!
Here are my two vintages sewing machines...
Sweet Baby Jayne on the left is my newly acquired 1964 white Featherweight 221K (with a "tail", as the folks from "Treadle On" would say). And on the right is my 1901 Singer Treadle Model 127 with the sphinx egyptian decals (no "tail" so is people powered). Hey, I just realized that my Singer doesn't have a proper name. I have been calling her "Treadle" but that seems so impersonal! Do you have any names to suggest for this beauty?!?
To see more collections, hop over to Love Laugh Quilt. Enjoy!
I love both of my antique treasures and use them at least once a week to keep them in good working condition. They each have projects that are all their own from start to finish.
This is Baby Jayne's project this week... teeny tiny little half square triangles, which I am sewing with a 1/8" seam allowance, and the machine is doing a great job with these little bits. I plan to use the blocks as a border for a stitchery that I am starting to work on.
And I am sewing with the thread collection which I won at the fall fair last weekend! It is an 18 spool collection celebrating the Coats & Clark 200th Anniversary and I am delighted to have the selection of colours to play with!
