I just can't resist!

It seems I have absolutely no willpower when it comes to sewing machines of yesteryear.  These three little beauties came home with me on the weekend.  They are all children sewing machines and all complete with the original boxes, instructions, and in working order.  What a find!  Unusual to see so many in one antique shop.

I know I'm going to have to try and resist from now on because frankly I'm running out of space to display these cuties!  I'm even thinking of getting rid of some of our 'regular' decor items and replacing them with sewing machines lol.  It's a sickness I tell you but hey, I'm ok with it.

1950s EMG Comet, handcrank, made in England.

1970s battery operated Little Golden Panoramic Sewing Machine by Singer made in France, battery operated or hand crank operation.

Zig Zag Sew-ette Sewing Machine.  Made in Japan.  One of the few toy sewing machines to have the zig-zag stitch.

Just as I was typing this, a feature appeared on the TV of a couple in Maryborough, Victoria who are also obsessed with sewing machines.... whoohoo I don't feel so alone now lol.

Unfortunately, not a lot of sewing has been going on here.  But I'm proud to say another unit of my course is done and dusted!

I'm hoping to have something to show you in my next post :)

Until next time,

Yours in Stitches,
