My early Christmas present to myself

I was in a quilt shop the other day and saw this cute little Singer featherweight machine so I bought it! Yes I have a new computerized machine but this one is supposed to be a great little workhorse and I thought it would be nice to teach my youngest daughter to sew on. Plus I got a great deal on it! And it was too cute to pass up.

It also came in the original case and look what I found in the case with it (along with a cool old buttonhole attachment). Remember when JC Penney sold bias tape for 8 cents? I don't.

Click here for more pics. So I guess the tradition is to name them so now I need to come up with a name. Any ideas?

OMGoodness! This is just fantastic! Love that little machine. I have to tell you, when I first decided I'd teach myself how to sew, I used my grandmother's VERY OLD machine - it even had the foot pedal you had to move back and forth to make it sew! This reminds me a little of that machine.
Great find.

What a neat machine! It reminds me of a simpler time...maybe her name should be Edna. :) Or Bessie.
