I don't know about you, but I am ready for warm weather, sunshine, and time spent outside!
According to the original bill of sale, she was purchased in 1918 for 5 pounds, 2 pounds discount off the original 7 pound price. What a deal!
After seeing that several people have old hand crank sewing machines, I suggested that we take them outside when the weather is warm and do some outdoor sewing. So, how about it? Do YOU have a non electric machine? Come and join us. We will be using the hashtags #crankalong and #backporchsewing for our outdoor sewing adventures this summer. We plan to start on June 1st so this should give you plenty of time to get your machine cleaned and oiled and get your project ready for warm weather. I'll need a project that doesn't involve lots of teeny tiny pieces as sometimes it can get windy outside. I am eager to relax outside and enjoy the fresh air.
Are you in? If you don't have a handcrank machine then join us with your treadle or handstitching and use the #backporchsewing hashtag. I can't wait to see all the photos.
You can also add your photos to my flickr group.
