I Just Could not Leave Her Behind!

Posted on Updated on

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,

A New Addition

The second bedroom in my home is quite small. When we bought the house, a twin sized bed literally filled the room. Since most of the time there are just the two of us empty nesters, I decided that the room would be much more useful as a sewing room. Since I have three brother sewing machines, I call it El Quarto de los Tres Hermanos, The Bedroom of the Three Brothers. Its fun to say I am in the bedroom with three brothers!
