Mother's Day gift ... and my new Bella!
Please meet Bella ... a 1953 Singer 201k low shank sewing machine. She is gorgeous! She's a straight stitch machine with an aluminum (apparently, from my research) body, and a wooden curved top carrying case. I found her locally on kijiji and the seller was kind enough to bring her over to my house for a test run - she PURRRS, I tell you. Of course, in true Typhoid Sandra fashion, the damn light bulb burned out 5 minutes after the seller left, and until I get a new bulb, I can't run the machine. If you ever need a machine killed so you can get a new one - just leave it with me for 5 minutes!!! FFS!!! I've already had her running so I'm not concerned, but how annoying, LOL!!! I'll buy 2 lightbulbs when I get to the store - just in case :D
I'm a happy camper for SURE, with my beautiful new-to-me-but-vintage goodies!
