As you may remember, Melany’s sewing machine died a tragic and early death last week. However, our story has a happy ending. Friend of Citymade, and good friend of Carol and Melany, Becky, has lent Melany this sweet sewing machine circa 1958.
It is truly a beautiful thing. It came with the table that it folds up into and a bench that opens for storage. When we opened the bench, we discovered that the, perhaps, original owner had done some re-purposing. The bobbins were in a cough drop case, the discs were in an old frosting container and there was an old greeting card box full of accessories. Over 50 years ago, re-purposing was cool. This is cooler than finding an iPhone in a bar.
