My dad loves telling people about how I'm so good, and so busy with my business, that I use two sewing machines at once.
So the other day he decided to get picture proof.
No, I don't actually use two at once. But I may use two (or all three) on one project. I may need different colored threads and don't feel like rethreading the same machine, or simply like getting to use each. The plastic one only gets used for the zig zag stitch, which I don't use very often because I usually sew little details by hand.
Oh, and good news about the mysterious Eesco rotary machine - my grandfather took it and fixed the motor, oiled it up, and said it's one of the best machines he's ever used. I can't wait to get it back and test it out for myself. I'm gathering up quite a collection of beautiful working sewing machines :) I got a set of bobbins for the 1924 singer, later I'll probably wind them all up with the colors I use most. And I bought a great necklace from AmazonCreations, it's a little old sewing machine replica, and I get so many comments on it! Wearing it around is great for my business because it starts up conversations about how I love old machines and love to sew.
And here's a peek at some things I've been working on...
