Well I went and done it again! I bought another vintage sewing machine, it is an Aldens straight stitch that was made in Japan in the late 50’s. This one I will be using a lot in 2017. I was so excited when I saw it. This vintage sewing machine had all sorts of attachments, and as sewing enthusiasts we all know we cannot pass this up.
This is the only one in my vintage sewing machine collection that I will be using. I had another vintage sewing machine similar to this one that I started on in the 90’s. I loved it. So I am so excited to start my project on this Aldens vintage sewing machine.
Today I am planning on getting this baby in shape to get started.
I am planning a sewing class on a Saturday for my daughter-n-law who is ready to learn the trade. So excited about that. I will be using this vintage sewing machine instead of my computerized ones.. If you are a sewer and ever run across these sewing machines buy it you will not regret it. They are tough. They are on the heavy side so they are not easy to carry around so you may want to get you a carrier on wheels. These sweet things are not made of plastic when you look inside everything is metal. Unlike the ones we get today.
Happy sewing in 2017!
