My Singer & Pattern Wins

singer_logo

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.

This adorable pattern is by Kerry at  verykerryberry.  You can find her patterns for sale here at her Etsy shop 

I was also one of the lucky pattern winners over at Hugs from Helen.   Helen’s patterns can be purchased here.

Isn’t this the cutest candle mat! It’s from a collection of patterns called Gran’s Christmas Table.
