Love and the Singer 15-90

It's only been a week since the Singer 15-90 arrived. I've barely seen the light of day, barreling through two boxes of vintage leather scraps and carting out cut velvets from the attic and the storage facility. Who knew that a machine, pushing 70 years old, could transform the sewing landscape around here?

It only serves to reaffirm my faith to never, ever buy new again. If you are looking for a newer machine that cant sew more than a bit of old muslin,check out the 8 or so I've listed on Craigslist. Will deliver in New Orleans!

Who knew? Me! I brought home a Singer 201 made in the 40s from a garage sale last year because I liked the cabinet and intended to put the machine I had into it. Turned out my machine didn't fit, but when I started looking at the vintage Singer I realized I'd lucked into a gem. It sews ANYTHING and I've discovered I actually like to sew now. One of my best $5 buys ever!
