roc day info we always have a celebration doing something fibery .
I wanted to remember my mothers passing in 2010 around this time of year.
I inherited her singer featherweight sewing maching so instead of using any of my other sewing machines I brought it up to the studio near the wood stove to sew the banner . She bought it in the 1960's I was with her when she did. She was a very good seamstress and made ends meet by sewing and doing alterations for others in our small rural town when I was a child. When I recieved the box with the machine in it I pulled it out and the pice of cloth under the presser foot was the cloth of the last dress she sewed on it, a dress for me. It had been untouched for more that 40 yrs. Memories flooded through me.
I had it serviced but they told me it was virtually like new, only a new belt and oiling etc. was needed and a bobbin winder repair.
HAPPY NEW 2012.
