PREloved Overlock - my new love

That day while I was waiting for the Singer technicianman to install the white base body for granny's machine I fell in love with this little thing... an overlock machine. I have longed to own this ever since I plunged myself into sewing some dresses for my little girls, that was almost 20 years ago.

I was lucky to have grabbed this preloved 3-thread overlock Taiwan made model just fit enough to cater for my need. Most importantly was the half price slashed and it is just like new. The previous owner trade-in this for an industrial ones...... so I was just lucky, was not I?

So Nia and Darr, for this coming 'Aid mama will sew all our stranded collection of fabrics and we have plenty to change baju kurung throughout the month of Syawal...... :D

I've always wanted one of those too. Now I don't do enough sewing to justify the cost. Love how you've modernised granny's sewing machine. It looks great. I wish my Mam had kept my nanna's. She traded it in to buy me one for my 21st birthday. It's 45 years old and still going strong but I loved that old treadle.

Winifred, thanks for visiting. I am very lucky to have granny's sewing machine knowing how she took good care of it in her younger days. And how fortunate you are too, to have one on your b'day and keeping it till now. I guess your machine is almost as old as my granny's.

Happy sewing Winifred!

Zila, lama sangat teringin... saja tak beli sebab jarang guna untuk patchworks. Tapi kalau rezeki datang menggolek KD tak kan nak tolak... Masih elok lagi mesin tu. Tuan dia yg dulu mesti guna dgn cermat.

So far so good. Dah mula guna untuk jahit tepi baby set hujau tu... Best juga tak payah lari ke kedai untuk jahit tepi kan!
