The sewing machine that the service man refers to as The Anchor and repeatedly tells me "this IS the last time I will do a cleaning on the relic".
I know he will work on it again if needed.
I love my old Singer.
It is my sewing workhorse.
My one hold on a time when then things were built to last.
Nothing fancy, no computerized stitching, just sewing.
There has been a storm of sewing going on and will have more to share soon.
