week 1: my singer sewing machine

Singer

A couple of months ago I found this beauty of a sewing machine in a charity shop. I had been thinking about buying a new sewing machine, but not considered an antique one. Until I saw this one in the shop and fell in love. I had recently read an article on vintage sewing machines and remembered it said they practically never break and are fairly simple to pull apart. For £40 I took the chance, even if it wouldn’t work at least its nice to look at.

After buying a couple of missing bits and giving it a proper clean it is still a bit temperamental with the tension, but it is sewing!

Therefore my first project of the year will also be the first project I’m using my singer. I’ve been meaning to start quilting for ages and found a fat quarter of a gorgeous selection of fabrics, so I will make a nice little quilt with it. You’ll see the end result by the end of the week.
