Re-Visiting a Sewing Machine

Today I taught a private lesson that took me back in time. My student was new to sewing, but had been given a very old “vintage” Husqvarna Viking sewing machine, not much different than the one I sewed on for years. Here is a picture of the model I was presented with today.

All the bells and whistles of this wonderful machine came back within a few minutes. The best part of using this machine was the feel. I will never forget the feel of a smooth running mechanical sewing machine and to use it was pure bliss! The machine model I had is below, and yes, I just plain wore out this machine! You will notice the machine I had was a newer model since it had a carry handle, something the older machine didn’t have, but it was still the “same” machine in many ways.

This was a fun teaching day and this student is going to do so well. I love giving “birth” to a new sewer!

Happy stitching!
