A special box!

How lucky. I picked up a box tonight with at least a hundred vintage patterns: simplicity, mccalls, and vogue. Mostly size 12! Just looking thru I would guess primarily 60s style. It will be fun going thru them all.

I think I could be official called a ‘hoarder’ now.

The patterns I dont keep, I will use the pattern tissue to wrap my families homemade gifts in!

White 763 Sewing Machine

I spent the morning cleaning, oiling, and fixing this beautiful machine. It sews at such a quiet volume and has a variety of stitches, including hem & zig-zag. I heard this machine is known as ‘My Fair Lady’ and was released at the 1964 Worlds Fair. Doesn’t remind me much of a lady…more of a 60s car with all the chrome details.
