201 Restoration

Hello there, dear readers.  I always mean to blog more frequently.  Then I don't.  Did you miss me, lol?

About a year ago I met lovely Stevi and her adorable daughter.  Stevi found my blog online and discovered that we live nearby, so she contacted me.  We did some sewing machine related stuff.  But I can't remember much of what I did yesterday, let alone a whole year ago, so I can't tell you about it.  But she did go home with the 201 shown in the picture.  You cant tell from the photo, but it was a basket case with truly terrifying wiring.

And last week I heard from Stevi again.  She has completed a restoration of that 201!

She says it still needs polishing but it is working well and she sewed a small bag on it.

Congratulations, Stevi!


I have been doing some sewing machine stuff, which I plan to blog about eventually.  But mostly what I have been doing is weaving.  I bought a loom for twined weaving and have made one 3' x 5' rug and am working on another one.

Experience has taught me that blogging about anything other than sewing machines goes over with a dull thud.  And that's OK.  But I will show you the weaving if you like.  Just ask!  LOL.


And if you live in the Piedmont of North Carolina and we have not met in person, consider dropping me a line and we can meet for lunch somewhere and talk about sewing machines.  Just ask my formerly imaginary friends Linda and Barbara how well that works!
