A few weeks ago two friends, Anne Marie and Murray, came to visit us here in Galway. They arrived with a super duper surprise box for my birthday. A present from them was completely unexpected!
At first glance, you can guess what's hidden inside....
It's the most gorgeous antique sewing machine! This sewing machine was Murray's mom's machine. She used to make dresses in the 60's and 70's with it when Murray was growing up. Sadly, Murray's mom passed on several years ago and the sewing machine was left unattended in the home house. As Murray's two brothers were not interested in using it, Murray scooped it up and brought it to Galway!
Now, we made a deal. If any of Murray's children, nieces or nephews ever wanted to re-claim it I would return it immediately. Until then, it's on loan here at my house.
It's a gorgeous Sovereign with an immaculate paint job and gleaming metal.
Get a load of the face plate! It was perfectly oiled too and sews like a dream. Amazing.
I love that it has a little knob for Embroidery, Silk or Normal. I guess I'll just stick to Normal, then.
