It is so/sew fun to be sewing on a vintage sewing machine while watching TV shows about the 1950's. I am sewing rows of log cabin blocks together on my 1952 Singer Featherweight. I enjoy getting a video of an entire season of my favourite shows from the library and watching the episodes while I sew. (Yes I could join the new century and get Netflix, but the library is free, which means more money for fabric!)
One of my favourite shows is Call the Midwife, which is a British show about a group of nurse-midwives and nuns who help the poor in London in the 1950's. My favourite character Chummy has been seen many times sewing clothing and making alterations on uniforms on her hand crank Singer.
Also lately I have been sewing while watching the third season of the Great British Sewing Bee. For some reason it is easier to location season 3 episodes than it was for season 2. My favourite episode so far this season can be seen on YouTube here. The sewists (don't you just love that word?!?) are using beautiful Featherweight sewing machines, and complaining about them the whole time. They are the easiest machines to use, but the sewers are familiar with complicated computerized sewing machines, and can't figure out how to work the old ones! LOL!
Here is a good laugh... "never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically...
And when you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible".
I am laughing hysterically now!
Excuse me while I go and do my hair and put some make up on! LOL
