Good morning Sewists,
I’ve bought a few sewing machines over many years. When I buy a new one it’s because it does more things than the previous machine but I keep the old one as backup.
I do look after my machines and so they last, I bought the two vintage machines because I think they’re beautiful and needed a good home. This week I bought a stand from Big W so they can be out and not stuck in a cupboard, the stand fitted perfectly into a corner of the sewing room.
Not an attractive piece but practical and functional – and a sewing room can never have too many drawers. It didn’t have a bottom shelf so I made one, I just need to sand and stain it.
One project I shall start soon is fabric covers for some of the machines, three of them have soft plastic covers which attracts dust. I’ve never sewn bags or covers or suchlike so it’ll be a change from shirts, bow ties and clothing – a pleasant one I hope.
That’s my day, I hope you have a good one,
