First, I finished the Pinwheel quilt and it is washed and ready to go! We will mail it either Friday or Saturday!
I have three more machines I use, you can see them at the left hand of my blog. I use my hand cranks for all of my piecing. If you click on my Treadle Sewing Machine Tab you will see them also. This is my post on the hand crank I use for my piecing. I enjoy using my hand cranks because they never "eat" my material like the new machines will sometimes, and they are very easy to fix! I also have a newer Janome I use for my quilting and dress making. Here is what my "sewing" room looks like!
I'll be linking this post with Tilted Quilt Meet My machine and other linky parties on my side bar.
Update: I have found that my Dressmaker is "Most likely, it is just a 'clone' of a Singer 15. The US Govt handed over the patent to Singer 15's to the Japanese after WWII, so that they could re-start their economy. I have several versions of Japanese Singer 15 machines."
And here is some information about Leonard's Department Store "Leonard Brothers was a local store. In fact it was one of the largest department stores in Downtown Ft. Worth. It was eventually bought out by Dillards. If you remember a few years back Tandy had the subway downtown it was first started by Leonard Brothers to move passengers from the parking lot to the store downtown. Yes a BIG prominent store in Ft. Worth"
Isn't that an interesting piece of history?
What is your favorite machine to use?
