Look what I found! A beautiful Singer Featherweight from 1952. I think it is so neat that you can still go online to Singer and find out when your sewing machine was made. The serial number is AL-185228. Here is the link for the Singer serial numbers.
We recently got back from a trip to Elk River, MN to see Bob’s mom and stopped in Prairie Du Chien on the way back and went to a flea market where I found this beauty! We were almost ready to leave when I spotted this.
The case is in great condition, there is a key and look at all the bobbins! The seller had a generator so I was able to plug the machine in and make sure it worked. There wasn’t any thread but I’m sure I can adjust the tension if needed.
I won’t use the oil but how fun to have a old can that sold for 30 cents. Are you wondering what I paid for it??????? Only $200! I haven’t used it yet……I might have to try it today. I have been wanting one for some time and I’m tickled to add this to my collection. Builder Bob says……”No more sewing machines!”
We stopped at several quilt shops along the way and I picked up some goodies I couldn’t live without. Notice there are 2 patterns for clothes…..I used to sew all my clothes but that was years ago and I have kept saying I wouldn’t do it anymore. Well, I saw these patterns made up in batiks and…….had to get them! Hmmmmm……wonder where my serger is and if it still works. I also picked up that cute AccuQuilt Owl die.
We really enjoyed our trip to Elk River, MN and getting to spend time with Bob’s mom. She is a sweetheart and you would never guess that she is 94 years old! Bob had fun cooking dinner for us a couple nights.
I was able to get plenty of walking in when we were in Elk River, MN. We stayed at the Country Inn & Suites and there was a overpass bridge for walkers and bikers. This was so neat as Bob’s moms place was on the other side of this busy road.
