a new beauty to love

Singer Model No. 27 circa 1910

Gonna have to practice to get the treadle rhythm just right.

Something consistently scratched this area.

the bobbin... odd, huh?

Bobbin case (shaped like a torpedo)

I am a sucker for the details!

Believe it or not, this was a gift from a friend! It was in her grandmother's house and when they cleaned out the house, she did not want it. I was honored to give it a home. I actually have it in my silhouette themed dining room, because just look at the detailing on the legs!

Interesting to note: Our house will be 100 years old this year and since this is about the same vintage, I will display it proudly. I really hope I can master working it well enough to make something lovely.
