A new addition to my sewing room...

and my Mother's Day gift this year, a vintage sewing machine cabinet.   My husband and sons had wanted to buy me a super-duper stand mixer as my gift this year, but it's just not in our budget at the moment.  I have been wanting a vintage cabinet for several months now,  so when I found this little gem advertised online this past Saturday,  I told my husband that this would make a wonderful gift for me. :o)

 Opened up, you can see it has spool and bobbin storage on the side and is set up for a knee control for the sewing machine foot pedal ( a feature that my 15-91 Singer has and I love!).
 My first desire was to have my husband modify the cabinet so it would house my Janome Memory Craft 7500 for machine quilting,  but now I'm thinking I want it for my serger.  The cabinet needs some cosmetic work before I will be putting it to use for my sewing projects, though.  I really don't want snags or flakes of varnish marring my sewing - lucky for me that my husband is a talented carpenter. ;o)
Thankfully, Spring temperatures have finally arrived so that this can be refinished in our garage.  I can't wait to have this vintage treasure ready to use!

  1. Oh that's going to be a beautiful addition to your sewing room once your hubby has it all spruced up.

    I'm going to be on the look out for one of those soon too. Over the weekend I won an ebay auction for a Singer 15-91. I can't wait until it gets here and I can start sewing with it.
