My Vintage Machine!

WOW what a surprise I received the other weekend!  My friend Linda and Patrick are downsizing and moving into an upscaled condo due to Linda's health problems.  Well I was luck to be gifted one of her vintage Singer sewing machines.  Thank you so much my dear - I'll for sure treasure this machine!  I took pictures right away but didn't get around to searching for the issue year etc or blogging until today.

So basically this one has very colourful decals (not the mother-of-pearl I had said it had - that was Linda's other machine) and with it's serial number I found out it was issued in 1924 from Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, Canada.  YEAH for Canadian made!!! 

I love this baby and once they have packed up I'll be buying her fabric shelving unit for my sewing room as you enter and once set up I'll be displaying this machine on top or maybe in the corner on my first Singer sewing machine cabinet.
