Guess who doesn’t have to do all her sewing by hand anymore!!
Me. That’s right.
This beautiful sewing machine belonged to my grandmother, and it’s actually still in perfect working condition. I’ve never sewn on a treadle before, and when we first set it up, I was a bit overwhelmed by the difference. It takes more focus, and more hand-eye coordination than I usually have, but after a hot Sunday afternoon of practice, I’m doing well! Now I have to find all my fabric and get started on all the little projects I’ve been putting off for months.
