Meet my vintage New Home Light Running Sewing Machine:
I found this at a garage sale while out on my long weekend walk this afternoon.
It even came in it's original sewing cabinet:
All for $25.00! Have you ever been unable to resist such a find?? I love it's old style, olive green color. It's made of metal and operates using a knee pedal and YES it runs!!!! The old style plug is in wonderful condition. Looks like from the medallion label, it was made in 1889. I only wish it could talk and tell me stories of it's journey and projects made!
If you have a vintage piece, I'm curious what you've done with it. I think mine would look good in one of our guest rooms with a quilt draped on it. I also think I'll use it to sew a sampler size quilt top for the fun of it! (And I just added "Vintage Sewing Machines" to my Tuesday Archives list!) Be cool to see what vintage machines everyone else collects.
Hope your weekend is super!
