A New Member of the Fleet

I am so proud to announce a new member of the fleet of machines in our studio. A STUNNING 1949 Singer Featherweight 221! I recently had the pleasure of using one when I was out of town at a conference. I fell in love with the compact style and precise straight lock stitch it produced. Quiet, solid, and ultimately a premium piece of machinery that craves to be used and enjoyed!

This model came with the famous Singer buttonholer and a myriad of templates.

I am often reminded how fortunate I am, that I am educated in manipulating fabric with a simple straight stitch machine and still be able to create magnificent garments and accessories. The joy of using a vintage machine that has been well cared for is beyond words. I often wonder about the women who used it before me and what their lives might have been like. I can only hope they derived as much joy in using it as I do.

Our hours are by appointment only. Especially during these days of the plague.  In this way we have sanitized the studio and provided N95K masks.

In addition my service dog the Mighty Thor is in the house.  An active puppy who loves everyone, so be prepared.
