But, I did get a chance to chat with Mom briefly. I am still on the fence about going, the decision will be made once I hear from her Oncologist. There is just so much going on with her, it seems like every month there is a new development. Metastatic breast cancer is a bitch. Truly.
Seems like everyone is jumping on the sewing machine bandwagon this last week. The object of my desire, a vintage Singer 185J or 185K (same machine, only one made in Canada and one in England) was going for pretty cheap prices...not so much anymore. Here is a pretty picture of one:
I like it because it is a 3/4 size machine, all metal, and is basic. And it is green, how cool is that? I only need straight stitch, maybe a zig zag stitch.
I like Meari's Happy Lite, and I keep searching for one on ebay to no avail. Ho hum. An interesting tidbit I learned from Meari's post is that it was sold by a company from the area where we are from. Small world.
I am starting to read reviews of other basic vintage Singers, so the horizons are broadening. BTW, if you enjoy sewing, have you ever checked out this site, Pattern Review? Wow. I am loving the reviews of sewing machines so far.
Okay, my sewing peeps, please give me your opinion on vintage sewing machines. Remember, I need basic functions and easy maintenance. I am getting Mom's old ginormous machine when we move home next year. My old machine is a Kenmore and I am not feeling the love for Kenmore right now.
I anxiously await your responses.
