Last week I hauled the 1934 Singer 128K out of the corner of the sewing room. It is just as well I did, because in doing so I discovered that my star machine, the 1927 Singer 99K was growing a fluffy handle.
My intention is to use this machine for the next big quilt I am planning, so I wanted to give it a little run in. Because it has two spool pins I can save time by winding a bobbin while I am sewing. This felt like a great juggling act, doing mitred corners and bobbin winding at the same time. I can't understand why some people need to go bungee jumping for a thrill. This did it for me. Safer, too.
This machine is probably one of the most intriguing machines I have. The decals are fascinating.
