#16 but who's counting?

Yes it happened again, I was given this beauty.



It's a 1961 singer Rocketeer model 503.   Our friend Jim is downsizing and offered to me. It even came with all kind of accessories including this box of cams.


You can use two needles and sew with two threads for some beautiful decorative stitching.

This vintage Singer oil can was in one of the drawers.

The blacksmith gave it a well check.
It was ready to sew.

I went to see Jim the next day and took him a small thank you gift,

Deer sausage and homemade cookies!

Sew on ~ ~ ~

I have the same question . . . where in the world do you keep all your machines? Are they set up and ready to sew? Do you actually sew on all of them? Inquiring minds what to know . . . and watch to see a picture of your "show room!" Blessings my friend!
