SMS Sewing Machine Meme
What brand and model do you have?
(I have a Huskystar back home, but for the purposes of this meme, I’ll focus on the Singer I have here.)
How long have you had it?
About 4 months, since we moved to Australia.
How much did it cost?
Not nearly as much as I was ready to pay for a machine like this one!
What types of things do you sew?
Do you like/love/hate your machine?
Love, love, LOVE this machine!!
What features does your machine have that work well for you?
Beautiful, perfect straight stitches (that’s its job!). Ken (the machinist at Heights Sewing Centre) added the foot pedal and a lamp, which work wonderfully. (I’ve never worked with a hand-crank machine, but the foot pedal is an added convenience.)
Is there anything that drives you nuts about your machine?
The only thing I don’t like about this machine is that I won’t be able to take it back to the U.S. with me, as it won’t work there : (
Do you have a good story to share about your machine?
Mmm…I bought this at the local sewing machine/haberdashery. I talked to the machinist, and explained that I was looking for a basic sewing machine, on a budget, and he said he’d fix something up for me. I never expected something like this!! When I went to the shop to pick it up, I was blown away! I wasn’t very familiar with older models of Singer, but when I looked it up online, I could not believe how lucky I was to be able to use on of these beauties.
Would you recommend the machine to others? Why?
Oh absolutely! Just look at it!
What factors do you think are important to consider when looking for a new machine?
As long as it will do what you need it to do (well), then you should be just dandy.
Do you have a dream machine?
This would be it. *sigh* I hope to find another like it back home.
