|older photo, the machine is now in its nice refinished stand.|
It took me a while to adjust the tension, again. Finally I declared it ready. I started on the bag yesterday afternoon, late. First I made the strap. That was pretty thick for this little machine. The rest of the bag went together pretty quickly since I had so much experience with the pattern. But I had an awful time making the final seams. The machine just wouldn't handle the bulk.
I thought, some, of trying the 31-15 but by the time dinner was over and I had taken my cholesterol lowering, heart disease prevention medicine, I was spent. Besides, I wanted to watch The Princess Bride.
This morning I surveyed the machines in the sewing loft; Singer 237, Singer 201, Kenmore 1760 and, of course, the Singer 15-90.
Gloversville isn't THAT far from here. Maybe on a lark I will load it into the car and trek up there to see.
