I'm doing a happy dance! A vintage featherweight Singer sewing machine has found it's way to my house. She is just a wee little thing, weighing in at 11 pounds. I have been wanting one for a long time and when I saw that Donna had one for sale, I asked my husband for an early wedding anniversary gift (next month). She was made in 1948 and belonged to a Ministers wife who sewed her clothes on it when she was in college. Some history for you…around 2.5 million were manufactured from 1933 to 1964 in Elizabethport, New Jersey; Clydebank, Scotland; and St. John's, Canada. I have not turned her on yet as she just arrived yesterday. Sweet Donna also sent along a fabric gift. Wonderful prints from Atsuko Matsuyama 30's collection. Be still my heart! Flower Sugar and 30's collection are my two all time favorite fabric lines. My heart is so full today!
