Do you have a favorite sewing collectible? Vintage rick-rack, laces, 1930s feed sack fabrics, etc.? My vintage Singer collection began about 15 years ago when we were out looking for an inexpensive bedside stand, and DH spotted a suitable table with Queen Anne legs in an upstairs corner of a local second-hand shop. We soon discovered said table was a sewing stand complete with a vintage black Singer machine inside. Priced at $20.25 (everything in the shop had that 25 cent extension). We asked if the machine was in running condition and the proprietor obligingly carried it downstairs for us since there were no electrical outlets in the upstairs of that huge old barn. We plugged it in and it purred. Sold! That machine turned out to be a 1951 Singer 201 Centennial edition - often reported to be one of Singer's best models. Still my favorite go-to machine for piecing and general sewing, it was later joined by a 1952 Featherweight, then other Singer models ranging from a 1907 treadle to the early 1960s 401 and 503 Rocketeer models.
So, how to decorate a sewing room housing all these vintage beauties? More vintage Singer, of course, plus other vintage textile related lovelies! Here are a few of my favorites: vintage magazine ads, early postcards, needle cards, etc.
So, do you have a sewing or quilting collectible? What makes you smile when you walk into your sewing room or nook?
