Well after all the saga of the sewing machine – this is what I ended up using to sew with aftermy Janome decided to throw a hissy fit.
It’s the old Singer sewing machine – I think around 40 – 50 years old that runs like a dream. If there is any down side it’s that there is no light over the needle – hence the naked lamp at the back of it.
Jess (lying on the blanket at the back – particuarly likes the lamp though. I caught him asleep with his head right near the light globe when it was going – nicely warming his chin. How on earth he didn’t burn it I will never know.
On Monday – much to my relief – the New/Old Elna arrived and after reading the instruction book (something I rarely do) I started to play.
What a wonder it is. So quiet not even Jess is disturbed…grin…..and no one has told me to stop sewing cause they can’t hear the tv…..always a blessing….not that I listen to them anyway….lol.
The case forms the large sewing area that you can see and is amazing for when you are sewing on the binding to a quilt. It supports it soooooooo well that I had none of the issues of it dragging against the needle like I normally do. I received a walking foot with it, a darning foot, an adjustable zipper foot and a cutter which works (from what I have seen cause I haven’t tried it yet) like an overlocker. There are about five fancy stitches including the basic zig zag stitch. All in all I think I got a bargain.
