My husband bought me an awesome birthday present: not one, but two hand crank sewing machines! Why would I want a hand crank sewing machine you ask? How many sewing machines built nowadays do you know will last 50-100 years? Are they easily fixed without costing you a leg and an arm? Are they dependable? The answer is no, but the older vintage machines are built to last and easily repaired!
I got to try out a hand crank before and ever since then I have wanted one. It is quiet, easy to use and makes perfect little stitches. This is from the TOGA I went to in April.
Meanwhile I am slowly finishing my quilt.
The neat thing is that I can download the instruction manuals from www.singerco.com . I also downloaded on from ISMACS onto my phone's kindle. I was at my friend's house and was not sure how to thread t and all the information was right there!
Do you have a hand crank or treadle?
