This is my baby.
My 1960's Singer sewing machine.
Bought for me by my dad and step-mum, and currently living at theirs until I move and have room for it.
When I was home recently I embarked on my first paid dressmaking job, and making the toile on it was fun. This heavy beast works, but I had to make a makeshift spool as the original one was missing. I fashioned it out of a bit of blu-tack and a plastic knitting needle.
Make-do and mend indeed!
