Embroidery samples on my supermatic

Filed under: Family,Sewing — October 8, 2011 @ 7:50 am

My grand-mother passed away earlier this year, and my mum and aunts decided to give me her former sewing machine, an elna “supermatic”. It’s probably over 50 years old, but she so took such great care of it that it’s still in great shape. I found on Ebay a set of extra cams, and now I can do all those super pretty fancy embroidery stitches.. ! :-P
It’s quite special for me to be able to sew with my grand-mother’s sewing machine… especially when reading her notes on the manual or sewing booklet that came with it. I always have a thought for her and nearly feel like she’s around, which is nice. :-D

Excuse me otherwise for the lack of posting. Some rather serious health problems happened in our house lately, and I just had no time for crafting or even working altogether. Hopefully this should get better, little by little. I haven’t had time to work on the larger (XL) size of the Jehanne cardigan yet, but should be done soon with the revised sizing for the Roselette. Testers for the 6-8-10 yo sizes anyone ? :-)
