the domestic sphere

my dalliances with all things domestic


sewing machine

I've been trawling for an antique sewing machine and cabinet for Zoe's birthday. And yes, this is what is on her wish list... When I was a child we had our (electric) machine in an old Singer treadle cabinet, and I was endlessly fascinated by it and did wish that you could sew with your own foot power, so I do understand the attraction. If I could get a treadle machine working smoothly again, I'd go for it, if not I figure I'll have the pink Brother installed in it somehow. I do find the cabinets and the old machines themselves quite lovely.
