New Machine, well, it’s 120 years old…

I’ll be posting some pictures of my new chain stitch machine soon, it’s 120 years old and works brilliantly; must remember to oil it regularly. It has no bobbin, just one thread. I intend to use it not just dust it, but I think I’ll have to be a lot more careful with the needle than I usually am, I have a couple of spares but need to source some more. The only problem is my foot keeps trying to find the pedal on the floor. It’s a tiny machine but weighs a ton, obviously made to last.

Things moving a little slowly on the textile front at the moment as decorating and a massive de cluttering excercise have been taking place, hard work but incredibly freeing.
