My Prettiest Machine :-)

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. 🙂

(Today’s message was brought to you by Jones Medium CS and the letters J, M, C, and S!)
