My great-grandmother taught me to hand piece quilts when I was very young, maybe 3, or 4. She had me cut out squares using newspaper patterns and sew them together. After that I learned to machine sew on my grandmother's Singer 237. I remember that thing was HEAVY!! Around the age of 8. I got a Montgomery Ward child's sewing machine.
Last summer, my mother and I began "collecting" vintage sewing machines. Now, we have over 100 machines and are beginning to thin the herd so to speak, cutting them down to just ones we want to keep and use. I'm not exactly sure what I want to do with this blog, but I'm sure I'll figure out along the way. I hope to post a gallery of machines in my collection, and photos of projects and who knows what else.
I hope you will find my posts entertaining and informative. Please feel free to comment as I love seeing who is reading my posts and making friends in the blogging community.
So...... here we go!!
