Sewing Machine Revivals: Part 1

Ok! I have something so very exciting to share with y'all! I recently bought my very first vintage sewing machine!

I first started looking into getting a Singer Featherweight 221 a couple months ago. I reached out to Michelle (owner of Urban Spools) and she told me that her fabulous husband had recently started buying these fantastic machines to fix up and sell. {Doesn't that sound like a cool hobby? I tried to get Mr. Relish interested in a hobby like that and he didn't bite, but someone else did!}

I told her to put me on the list for the next one and she immediately responded that one was on the way and once her husband cleaned her up, she was ALL mine! I picked her up last week and isn't she just adorable? I still need to look up her birthdate.

  3. I learned to sew on a Singer 401 and then my Nanna gave me her featherweight when I was a teenager. I have sewn net curtains to leather skirts on it. Great machine. I now also own a Singer 431 it comes with cams and does zigzag stiches.
