New sewing machine!
I got a new sewing machine! It's one that has been sitting at the thrift store I frequent, and just this week marked down from $40 to $20. What a steal. The machine is built into a table and can fold under for space saving. It also has a knee pedal instead of a foot pedal which will get some getting used to, but I really like the lack of twisting wire on the floor. After dusting it and setting up my own little space, it feels so nice and inviting, I even hung up some 1940s pictures and needlepoint I bought earlier in the week, I'll have to take pictures of those too.
I'd love to sit right down and tackle the basket of repairs I have, but its missing its little bobbin holder. I hope it wont need any sort of special one, I just plan on taking ones I see from the hopeless sewing machines at the bins, and if that doesn't work I'll need to search around for one. Meanwhile it just looks so pretty, and sounds ever so smooth.
If anyone has an idea when this is from (I'll do some research soon) I'd love to hear what you think. My guess is 1940s, but is in such good condition its hard to tell.
