Super Deluxe Zig Zag Sewing Machine; my first
My Grandfather sent me my Grandmothers sewing machine! The package weighed a whopping 47lbs. It was purchased in 1958 and it was his first Christmas present to her. She used it a bit and now I am happy to have it and put it in good use again. Now when I sew, she can watch down on me and bless my future projects because Lord knows I will need it!
After reading through the manual and cleaning it and oiling it thoroughly I gave it a go and she runs well! I grabbed some scrap fabric I had to put her to the test. Here is how we turned out. (I say we because I am learning the foot pedal, you will see)
COMING UP: My Grandmothers (dad's side) birthday present (hand sewn items!) :)
