old sewing machines
Found this little handy dandy sewing machine at Savers for 99 cents along with the instruction booklet. What do you think... the 50's? This little baby does it all... regular stitching, basting, zig-zag and blind stitching. And it also sews on buttons. It holds smaller wooden spools and came with the spool that you see in the Dexter.
Many years ago I had my husband bring back my Grandma's old Montgomery Wards sewing machine. He had gone to Wisconsin to do some concerts in his little Honda hatchback. And of course I had to have him bring me back something! I mean, it was just him in the car. So picture this... my Grandma's old peddle machine, a big old milk can and an oak plant stand all packed in his little car. Oh and don't forget his guitar, cases of CD's, suitcase, the usual. Poor guy, he couldn't even pull over, recline his seat and take a nap as he likes to do while traveling. So yes, I think I can safely say that my husband is the King of Husbandom. Seriously, he's the best!
