Today my daughter came home with a surprise for me, a gorgeous old Singer sewing machine. I have always wanted one and admire them every where I go. I researched on line thanks to Alex I Askaroff (Singer sewing machine dating guide) that it was made in Great Britain in 1945. So as the War was ending my machine was being made, what a lovely piece of history. Now I am on the look out for one of those beautiful old sewing treadle tables for it to sit on and be in my home and sewing room for many many years. I just wish I'd have taken the one my dear old Mum had many years ago and gave away! Maybe it is only as we get older we start to appreciate these things.
