Up for Grabs!

Come and get it or pay the shipping and it's yours!  I don't know if it works or if there are any parts missing, it was given to me today.  I live around Nashville, TN for inquiring minds.  Email me if you're interested, first come, first serve, I know how some of you like the vintage machines.  This is labeled as a "New Home"  machine.  It is in a wooden box that has seen many better days.  To see the pictures better just click on them to see the whole picture.  Please, give this beauty a new home.  *PLEASE NOTE*  If you are interested in shipping this machine, it IS HEAVY!  I will be more than happy to get a weight on it this week and a price for shipping it through the U.S. Postal Service.  I may possible even be able to get a quote from UPS.

My Day Yard Saleing!

So many patterns, so little time!  I had a good day yard saleing (o.k., I know this is not a real word but bare with me).  The lady was so tired of selling things, she gave me these things!  I could not in good conscious walk away without compensating her at least a little.  I gave her a few dollars for everything.  There are more patterns but these are the best out of the bunch.  What luck!  I love the Vogue Paris Original by Patou, so classy.  

I ended up with several very nice Vogue Patterns.  A short list as follows:

Update on My Vogue Project

I've got most of the pieces cut out. I ran out of fabric and have to go after more this weekend. The ladies at the fabric store near my home were kind enough to call around and find it for me when they were short on the amount I needed.

Photo Problems

I seem to have fixed my photo problem.  Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

I'm having some trouble with my photos.  I'll have them back up as soon as possible.  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Vintage Sewing Book

This is a really great book a friend sent me to help me out.  It explains things very thoroughly.  Lots of helpful pictures and things to make the process a bit easier.

Giveaway Winner!

The giveaway winner is Sewducky!  You can contact me at  Thanks to everyone who participated!

I had pictures posted of the drawing process.  I'm having technical difficulties (as cliche as that sounds) and I have lost my photos.  I do apologize for that.  As there is no way to repost these photos there will be none on this post.  There is just no way to recreate them.
