Antique 1907 Singer Sewing Machine

This is what I got (myself) for an early Birthday present.


My girlfriend and I were out thrifting and stopped at a little roadside fleamarket. That's where I found her. She not perfect and she's been used A LOT. I've always dreamed of having an antique sewing machine. Although the one in my dreams was shinny and new and in perfect condition. I brought her home and gently cleaned her up...she's missing her front drawer and needs a new belt. Other than that, she's in working order....


... Her name is Shirley, after the woman who taught me to sew... she's worn because someone loved her...and now, I love her.
