In Stitches

I bought a sewing machine today. It's from 1961, looks like a rocket ship and is called a Slant-o-Matic Rocketeer. It is touted by Singer as the best machine ever made. We'll see if it lives up to it's name.

But you have some of the best European brands at your fingertips! :)

I want to try my hand at making a dress. I sewed a skirt with the help of my aunt when I was 14 or 15, and a quilt when I was around the same age. I made curtains for an old apartment when I was 22. I kind of miss it, though I don't miss being frustrated by the complicated process of threading the machine!

I'm just waiting for it to be shipped, and I'll have to take it in to be cleaned and serviced before I use it. They said it was in storage for awhile.

Hopefully it works like a dream! :)
