I have said it over and over; I don't sew. I have also said several times, I am GOING to find a sewing machine at garage sale this summer! Well, here she is! I found her quite early in the season! Drum roll please; only $15! The garage sales have been fabulous lately. I almost didn't stop at his sale and then I saw them...two machines sitting on a table! I saw this one, a Kenmore and also a fancier Brother. I know nothing about sewing, but I thought to myself, "Self, you don't need a fancy one. You wouldn't even know what to do with it.
|Remember the curtains I found at Goodwill? I posted about it here. I am going to make valances for the kitchen window!|
When I got home for the garage sales my engineer/researcher (AKA hubby) Spent hours on line looking into the machine. Conclusion; good job, Karen! The older machines are made better. This Kenmore has a Singer engine. The older machines, like mine, are made from heavy duty metal and they last a long time. This older model sells for about $145.00 on-line. My husband also managed to find an entire Manuel on line for free. He printed it out and has it all stapled to together. He also fixed the tension for me and re-filled the bobbin. Love it!
