We sewing machine nuts are usually easy to buy for at Christmas time. Anything sewing machine related is fair game for the giver. This Christmas my wife gave me a cute hand crank sewing machine from the late 1800s/early 1900s. I can't pin down a more precise date because the sewing machine has no maker's name on it. It looks to be German but I'll need to do more digging in order to find out who made it.
It sure is nice looking, eh? And it runs so smoothly.
It's got a nice porcelain crank handle.
I do need to find a shuttle for it. I have a bobbin but no shuttle.
