This has been a fantastic week! The other day when I was at my Mamaws she mentioned to me that she still had my Great Grandmothers Singer sewing machine sitting out in her shed and asked if I wanted it. "Of Coarse I do!"This Singer sewing machine has been around a really really long time. I remember as a little girl watching my grandmother sew on this machine and being amazed at all the beautiful things she would make. My Great Grandmother along with my Mamaw and mother are all inedible seamstress. As for myself I am a somewhat of a decent sewer , I have basic sewing skills but nothing like the tree of them. But that will soon change now that I have my grandmothers old Singer. It still works! When I got the Machine home I started cleaning out all of the drawers that were still filled with all my Great Grandmothers things.
It was so neat to see all the different kinds of trim and thread colors you can totally tell the different eras this machine has sewn threw. This machine made the majority of my clothes as a kid. It also was the machine my grandmother used to sew my mothers Beautiful wedding dress. Among all the fun goodies I found a few packages of sewing needle that had probably been purchased in the 1950's the picture of the women sitting around in aprons on the front of the package is priceless. Another thing I discovered was my Grandmothers Tomato Shaped needle cushion (every grandmother had one of these) and her tape measure, now I can't even begin to count the number of times I have been measured with that thing I remember her telling me "Be still its like trying to measure a bull in a china closet" I was a little hyper as a child lol!
I got the Machine all cleaned up and moved it inside to my bedroom, that was where my grandmother keep it. It looks great! Not only will I be able to sew more often having this amazing gift but I will be reminded of wonderful memories every time I see it!
