A Little Vermont Visit - Vintage Sewing Machines

I forgot to do my Front Porch Visit on Monday (shudder), so will share a little visit with you now.

Amy and I have been busy working on sewing projects and getting our playroom set up as a large sewing room. Mr. White went into one of our storage rooms and pulled out an old Kenmore sewing machine. It is inside a cabinet which looks like it was made in the 1970's. The instruction book for the machine is dated 1971. It is an electric machine, a pretty pale green and very simple (basic), which will be wonderful. Amy and I will use this for making clothes, etc. We will continue to hand-sew but the machine will be for fun! I can't wait to test it out!

This treasured machine is one of many antique items that came with our 1850's house when we bought it several years ago. I also have, what looks like, a black, vintage, singer sewing machine in a cabinet that might be from the 1940's. I have never used this one, but it looks amazing.

Right now, Mr. White is putting up some large pictures on the walls to decorate. It will be a lovely room when it is all finished!

How wonderful to have a sewing machine available if you want it, and a whole room to devote to sewing!
Enjoy them both!
