Getting to know Nellie
Her decals are lovely art deco style pieces.
I have had her for 8 years, but just this week I finally got the machine repair man in to see if he could fix her up and make her go. All she needed was some oil and a new belt.
Even her bobbin winder works! She has a top-drop bobbin case - I bought some bobbins to fit.
My DD and I are in love -she is so nice!
I wonder who owned her before I did? What did she make for her first owner in 1916?
Oh, and why is she called Nellie? After Dame Nellie Melba, another hard working Singer!
