Sewing Lessons

Now here's a sight to gladden the heart!  

This is Miss H having her first go on the 1918 Singer 99K that I passed on to my friend Elizabeth before Christmas.  Her lesson included some serious sewing...

...winding a bobbin...

... concentrating on keeping a straight line of stitching and not coming off the edge...

... and finally a bit of fun, with the emphasis on speed rather than direction.  Will she be a free motion quilter or a cartographer?  Looks like the coast of Cyprus to me.

I am told that Miss H means business and her first project is going to be a bag.

Many thanks to Elizabeth for the wonderful photos!

Linking up to Connie's blog Freemotion by the River for Linky Tuesday

  5. How wonderful to see her sewing on the vintage sewing machine!!

  6. Looks she is serious with her lessons. I hope she will enjoy sewing in her life!!!!
    By the way, I think it is a part of the Netherlands.
