Every once in a while, we all just want to brag a bit…on our smartest dog, bravest kid, or…prettiest sewing machine.
This is my prettiest sewing machine, a Jones Medium CS treadle from about 1935. When I got it, I thought all the decals were gone – but they were just hidden under a thick layer of grime. With some gentle cleaning (sewing machine oil on an old t-shirt), this is what appeared:
Isn’t it gorgeous? Who would’ve thought all those beautiful decals were sitting there, under years of grime. Certainly not me!
Two other things I like about this machine: it has a true “reverse” lever, and it has pretty decals on the legs, too!
And so this is my “prettiest” machine. 🙂
