A friend of mine is permanently relocating to another state. She had an Estate Sale recently and while I was browsing I spotted a sewing machine case on the driveway. The case was quite dirty and appeared to have been stored, probably in a shed, for quite a while. The price tag was $5.00. I peeked inside the case and the machine looked fairly clean. For five dollars, how could I leave such a pretty, unloved machine behind? After all she’s PINK!
I brought her home, cleaned and oiled her, and found out that she runs just like new. Sadly, she has only one cam, but it is for the zigzag stitch, so I am happy about that. I can do all the fancy stitches I need on my Brother machines. My internet search tells me that she came into being around the late 80’s, but I cannot seem to find her serial number anywhere, not even on the Singer site. Oh well, she is pretty, runs well, and did I say it? PINK! (Oh, and I love the little heart drawn on the side of her base!)
If you know anything interesting about the Singer Merritt 2404, leave me a comment. I would love to learn more about her.
Until Next Time,
We live in a older manufactured home. Our “Master Suite” is pretty roomy and accommodates a king sized bed easily. The other bedroom, however is very small. When we bought our house the second bedroom barely accommodated a twin sized bed.
I decided that since all of our overnight company would be at least two people at a time the tiny bedroom was useless for company. I chose to rehome the twin bed and convert the room to my sewing and craft room. I bought a hide-a-bed couch with a queen sized bed in it for our living room. Our three comfy recliners can also be used for sleeping in a pinch.
Even without a bed in it the bedroom is still tiny and I am constantly looking for ways to store my precious sewing supplies. Well, today on my way to an exercise class I noticed a metal rack that had been set out for the recycling.
In our little community, usable but unwanted items are put out next to the street. Invariably, someone will come along and claim them. We bought a smaller wheelbarrow because this behemoth was too much for me to handle. Mr. M made the cute little sign and put it next to the street. When we got up the next day, sure enough, it was gone. I hope it has a good new home!
