Talking with my Aunt the other day about my latest acquisition, Singer Sewing Book. I hardly mentioned it before she said she might still have her original copy, too.
When she first bought a sewing machine (late 40s?) she didn’t know how to sew, but she had 3 daughters so she learned. In those days Singer offered 8 dressmaking lessons at their stores to anyone who bought a new machine. She still loves sewing, but can’t because of arthritis. Needless to say, she misses it.
Isn’t it wonderful to hear something so warmly remembered and spoken of!
