A Little Upgrading

Sew, my studio has a new addition! I found this lovely Singer sewing cabinet on Craigslist yesterday. It came with an old 1970's plastic Singer inside but my 1960's Rocketeer will fit once I get the Rocketeer restored. I moved my particle board cabinet right on out!

Right now my Juki is sitting atop the cutout insert. When I want to use the vintage machine I can move the Juki and lift the 503A out of it's cave. The 301A takes a different mount as it was meant to be portable.

Look at all the storage space in the drawers! It is shorter than my old cabinet but I don't mind a bit!

Included in with the accessories for the 1970's machine was this Singer accessory box. 

I cleaned it all up and it fits my 503A cams and feet and plates like it was made for them.

I should really stay off Craigslist and eBay! There is a 401A nearby and it seems I am a sucker for beige and cream colored machines...

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

Great score!! My great Aunt used to work back in the day for Singer, and she used to actually fix the machines that ladies would bring in, except that she had to be hidden away in the back to do it. A man worked at the counter because the women didn't think a woman could fix the machines LOL.

What a great cabinet. I never look at Craig's list, maybe I am missing out on some goodies.
