Hello there! Soooooo, did anyone guess what I might have bought??? Sorry, no prize if you did but isn't she just the most beautiful thing you have ever seen???? The Singer base with marble top is one I already owned and it also has history in my family, but the machine has come to me via a lovely family who found that they could not keep this in their home and I am just over the moon to have it here in my own home. It's not easy for someone to part with something this precious and I feel honoured that they felt comfortable selling it to me. It sews beautifully and hums along like a dream. I have never seen a machine with a knee shifter instead of a foot pedal and felt at home using it right away!! My Mum had a treadle that was converted to electric which I could use quite well when I was younger - you could use it either way and I was taught on the treadle. My new machine dates back to 1949 and is in such wonderful condition. As you can see, I have made a place in the sewing room for my lovely new machine and I just can't wait to use it!
|Now, what could be in the box???|
|A beautiful Singer 201K, electric with knee shifter, that's what!!!|
|Here she is close up --- I'm in love!!!|
|Plus she came with all of her bits and pieces and the manual!!|
