Ah what a lovely singer. I recieved one at Easter and can't wait to find a home for it when I sort out my sewing room. Unfortunately I have no advice on how to mend yours, good luck with it!!


Thanks Charlotte. A whole sewing room all to yourself?? Heaven!

Wendy Hill

As your Grandmother, I did learn to sew on one just like this which belonged to MY Grandmother. Have a fancy electronic one now and yearn for the splendid engineering of the dear old Singer.
I will look at it on my next visit, who knows, I might still have the knack. XX


That would be wonderful Nanna, please do x


That is absolutely beautiful, I am very jealous. I've wanted one of those for ages

As your Mother, I will be delighted when you get it working! I remember using Mum's old treadle, which may still be in Aunty Ady's possession, and it was very stress relieving - apart from buttonholes with the attachment! That was far too complicated and I left it to Nanna! That electric machine is actually from around 1982 - not long before I had you! It was perfectly good at the time. xx


Haha - it still is perfectly good thank you! Until the Singer is fixed I am using it anyway. It is just not the prettiest object in the world...and I dated it from the colour scheme - I wasn't too far out!
