Two darling sisters made tote bags as well. I helped Z and Betsy helped L. Z. ran the hand crank as she sat on my lap and L. guided the fabric as she sat on Betsy's lap. I would post their photos, but I don't have permission. They are adorable girls and so into sewing. L. kept saying she wanted to buy a machine. Let's hope she gets a vintage one. Not a Wal mart special.
Looks like we could go back for another demo. But in the warmer months. Just the same, it was fun to be there showing folks these great old machines.
In the photo above. A Hand crank VS 28, Betsy's "new" Red Head treadle and my VS 27. All these machines are older than dirt and still stitching.
