The SINGER brand is celebrating its 160th anniversary! You can add your Singer’s story here on their website at My Singer Story. There are over 1,500 wonderful stories already. You can also register your pre-1970 Singer and receive a certificate dating it for you after you enter your serial number.
My Singer was gifted to me by my aunt a few years ago. Her name (the machine not my aunts, silly) is ‘Purdy’ thanks to Pat over at All Decked Out. It is a 1966 Style Mate Zig-Zag Model #348. My aunt bought her brand spanking’ new. It has all the accessories and a beautiful solid wood carrying case.
There are nine stitch pattern “Fashion Discs” that you can put into the top as well as two needle stitching capacity.
I hope you enjoyed meeting Purdy. Do you have a Singer story to tell?
There is absolutely no excuse for me not to make some fabulous gifts for Christmas. I won this fun paper piecing pattern from Lily’s Quilts.
Isn’t this the cutest candle mat! It’s from a collection of patterns called Gran’s Christmas Table.
I hope you’ve got some wonderful gift ideas brewing in your heads because it’s time to get them started!
Thanks for stopping by and happy stitching,
