I swear this is not a new blog theme. I will back off from the sewing machine posts soon. The one thing that would be easier on an industrial type machine than on my 29-4 is straight line sewing. of larger flat pieces. I could use a machine that would handle the thinner leather in larger pieces and leave the thick pieces requiring special maneuvering to the 29-4. Then I remembered that my grandmother's old sewing machine was in my Mom's basement. It was manufactured in 1942. Such pretty design work.
From what I can tell, it will be able to handle the leather and some of the heavier materials I might want to sew. I dropped it off at a Singer distributor today. The woman who waited on me was very excited to see this machine. I am hoping that they can get it into good working order and I will pretty much be set for anything. Don't you just love it when you can shop for free in the basement?
