A new machine (well sort of)

Once it was new.

On September 2nd, 1940 at the Kilbowie factory in Clydebank, Scotland my new machine was born. In the next year it made its way to Australia and to my Grandmother’s house. Quite some time later I was taught to sew on it. This morning it finally became mine.

It has seen better days, the past year or so it has been in a cottage at my father’s house being pooed on by birds, so it is going to take a bit of cleaning up.

But, the best thing is… that there is nothing wrong with the machine… it sews beautifully…

Can’t wait to use it…
