Can you teach me how to not be scared and buy one?

My Nanna was a high quality upholsterer for most of her working life. She bought my sewing machine and taught me to use it. During this time, she told me that I could not really sew until I had sewn through my finger! I have never done so and, to this day, twenty years after her death, I still don't know if she was joking!

Have fun!

Rather you than me! I was totally put off sewing machines in my teens, when we were forced to sew hideous A-line skirts at school.

Good luck though!

That's a sweet old Singer!

Charity said...

Hooray! :o)

Haven't been by in while - my you've been busy. Those cushion covers are going to be so special. Glad you have won the mind battle over the sewing machine, especially a lovely old singer like that.
Swatches too? you are being a good girl, as for what to do with them, I would sew them together to make a blanket/throw (well I would if I actually knit swatches !!!)

I love your sewing machine! It's lovely. My Mum is very good at sewing but refuse to teach me until now. So I'm learning at the moment. Thanks for reminding me that my sewing machine exist, I have used it for a while now.

I'm still a fraidy cat! It took me a WHOLE year to make a school skirt in what was called Domestic Science lessons in the dark ages!

You do know that this has opened up a whole new world of craft expenditure. You now have to begin to lust after Amy Butler fabrics!
I love your machine by the way - I have a very modern white one that doesn't have half the personality of yours.

wow, you're brave. I'm terrified of sewing machines and they don't like me at all.

I've nominated you for an award. May not manage to finish blog post tonight though so check it out tomorrow.

Excellent! One of my friends gave me the antique sewing machine very similar to yours. The shape of the bobbin was totally different and I was so scared to use it... I am very impressed!
