I saw this display in a shop window and it brought back all kinds of memories. My mother was a fantastic seamstress who made lots a beautiful clothes for me and my sisters. When I was quite little, I remember seeing a sewing machine very similar to this around the house however, my clearer memories were of a much more modern sewing machine. I learned words like "bobbin", "throat plate" and "spool pin" watching her sew.
Mother made it look so easy. Cutting out a pattern and sewing the pieces together to form a classy looking dress or blouse. Sometime around the age of 25, I thought I could do that too. I bought a sewing machine and gave it a try. I quickly learned that I did not have the patience or the talent of my wonderful mother. I wonder what I did with that sewing machine.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. Explore the variety of Italian grocery stores.
