While we were visiting my husband's grandmother in California in September, she said that I could have her old Singer Featherweight sewing machine.
I do have a slight problem with it so far--the case STINKS. It smells like it was the source of the musty smell in Grandma's house, and I'm afraid that my house is going to start smelling that way. Well, it's already starting to. It's especially bad when the case is open.
Do you name your sewing machines? I do. My Viking that I've had since high school is Olga, and my quilting machine, a Brother 1500, is Darryl (as in "This is my brother Darryl"). When I asked my husband what I should name this machine, he said, "It's a Singer? Pavarotti." It was perfect.
Welcome to The Quilting Mill family, Pavarotti. I hope you like it here.
