Rob’s latest Treasure which he is meant to get for Christmas but the old itchy fingers could not wait to pull her apart and polish :-)

She came in the mail today. It took all his restraint to take before photos.

She is a Singer Model 30 Serial Number 3669684 made in 1913. She is a chain stitch machine and although it looks very similar to the Singer toy it is about twice the size. A reasonably uncommon machine, Rob has been trying to get one for ages. Stay Tune for her photo finish.

He managed to pick up another gorgeous machine this week too. No Before shots as he just could not wait. Stay tune for that one. Isn’t it amazing how you can wait all year and then just when you least expect it you have a find or in this case two :-)

 Cheers Lynne and Rob

If only she could take and tell about all the things she helped to sew together! Some things are worth waiting for! Will stay tuned, take care!

I like seeing the before photos. The usual pictures are so spectacular it is hard to realize how much work goes into getting them that way. What an artist!

I wish my husband was that quick! He promised me to take apart, clean and oil a singer featherweigh I found on the flea market three years ago but that is still waiting for him!

I love the little machine.
