Another girl has been added to the family; Singer Model 347. Upon first glance the name was Charlie. He was found in a local thrift shop. Well, to my surprise, Charlie is a girl and so her name is “Charliezl”.
She was a particularly good find because I had just purchased a way cute brown and pink Brother on eBay that is not working to my satisfaction. The stitch length does not adjust properly and I do not have the wherewithall to sojourn over an hour away to a sewing machine repair shop. When I stumbled upon Charliezl, tested her in the store, and saw that the stitch length is in working order I just had to have her at the $19.00 price tag! Not to mention she is a jolly mint green ta boot.
She boasts being made of metal, 110-120 Volts, .95 amps, and was made in Great Britain. She joined us not too much more than a month ago and she has helped make at least four outfits. She runs a bit hard; however, I plan on getting a manual and seeing what I can do by way of oiling her among other things. A professional tune-up is to be had to as soon as I am able.
Tabitha, Dorcas, and a yet unnamed serger, as well as myself happily welcome Charliezl to the Bubble Bunch at Lyric’s Lady Lair.
