It's my daughters 24th birthday in a couple of weeks and she has asked for a sewing machine. I've no idea where she got the idea for that from but all I can say is it's about time!
Now, we are already a three sewing machine family but she wanted one of her very own. One that she could use whenever she wanted and not have to feel in the way if she used one of mine in the workshop.
I have three Bernina's and I love them all. They are real work horses, they are reliable ( leaning over to touch wood!) and despite two of them being over 40 years old, they just keep on going.
My mum always had Singer's and my first and second were too but then I moved on up to Bernina's.
I'd love a vintage Singer and have been looking recently on ebay for one and when the right one comes along I'll buy one to join the sewing machine family!
While looking for the right one for my daughter I came across the Singer 160 Limited Edition. It looks like a vintage one but is electronic and gorgeous! It was love at first sight when I showed her a photo of it online.
Yesterday a nice man in a van delivered it and here it is!
Not the best of photos I know but you get the idea.
It came straight out of the box when she got home from work and out came fabric and thread and off she went.
I have to say, it sews beautifully and I'm very impressed.
Welcome to the family!
