Full Circle

37 years ago, my parents bought my grandmother a sewing machine.  She wanted to take a class and had no machine.  37 years later, she decided that it was time to pass it on, so she gave it to me.  She mailed me the manual which I received today and the machine is waiting halfway between her city and mine for me to pick it up.  I hope Gertrude won't be jealous!

Happy Crafting,


  1. How exciting! My mom still uses an old Singer. It is amazing how those older machines keep running. Love the vintage manual! ~Val

  2. How awesome to get something from your Grandmother such as this. How sweet of her to think of you. :)

  3. OMG! That looks like the manual that came with my machine when my transit gave hers to me! I'll have to dig it out and compare. Small world, huh?

  4. so cool, I love old sewing machines! treasure it because the more modern ones, while having all sorts of bells and whistles, aren't as hardy. I have a thing for sewing machines and resist collecting them because that could obviously be a problem, tehehe!

  5. That's so exciting! I love that your parents bought it for your grandmother. How did she get on with it? I'm going to try and get my family's sewing machine fixed so I can start to learn. It'll be inspiring to see how you get on with it.
