checking in............

........1000km's later...........I thought I had better post in case I don't get back for a few days............been pretty busy............today some "extended family" time..........more rain while I have been busy and more busy days coming up.......

.......but to change the subject I have several "old" machines and last week I was looking them all up........it turns out I have lots more then I realised...........dh found a couple more at the MIL's so I decided to check them out to.........this one he could not find the number but today we found it.............I looked it up and it was born to life at Singer 306K serial number EM in 1957. This is a very cool machine as it has some metal plate thingy's that go into it and then you can do "fancy stitches" zig zag..................not sure what else but it is still working and a treadle machine.........all the sewing bits and pieces still there from when it was last used.............

totally of the subject now Quilterpolly asked for some suggestions on how she could be an awesome "angel"........head over and help her out..........

  4. Oooh, how lucky you are to have those old machines. That one's a beauty! I'd love to have the machines that my grandmothers sewed on, but sadly they've been "lost".

  12. What a great old machine--they just don't make them like that anymore. My rule is not to sew on a machine "younger" than I am! Collecting machines is a great hobby--and they are so USEFUL!!

  13. I love your little singer. I also have one. I would be lost without it. it was my grandmas and she taught me to quilt on it. I still use it for classes...Thanks for reading my post and sending bloggers to me. Your the best and keep up the great job. I love your cards:)
