Recently I was given a sewing machine by a very generous lady. The machine is a Pfaff hand crank, I believe it's from somewhere between 1900 and 1930.
I love the old treadle and hand crank sewing machine, I think they're quite elegant. I find it really fascinating to look at all the pieces and figure out how they work.
When I got the machine it wasn't working. It took a day of cleaning and fiddling with the tension to get it stitching. Then right away I had to make something so I made the collar box from my last post.
