My Newfound Treasure

Add Image What a bargain! Found for a mere $5.99, I was making a quick run through the thrift store today and found this wonderful little piece of machinery. I just have to have a back-up for when my Jeans Machine goes into the shop for it's regular check-ups. Old sewing machines always bring back memories of my first days of sewing class in high school. (Nostalgic should be my middle name). Problem is I cannot find the model number on this and would like to find some accessories. I did a brief google search and just turned up images of lots of other machines I wish I had room for.
Anyway, if you have never learned how to sew, but would like to, your local thrift stores are wonderful places to go to get started. See my upcycled -shorts -turned-trendy-new-purse . In addition to finding a wonderful sewing machine for a wonderful price, you can pick up like-new clothing to turn into something wonderfully and unquely you!
