The diverse array of sewing machines at retreat is pretty interesting. Some people bring multiple machines depending on what they plan to work on or in case one has a breakdown. This year, though, I believe we had the oldest machine ever brought to retreat.
Donna's 1884 Singer Model 12
Love the decals.
Gwen's 1939 Featherweight
They just don't put that kind of detail in anything anymore. How pretty.
Donna's 1947 Singer treadle She machine quilted the prettiest feathers on this thing.
We called them "treathers."
My 1957 White in the table made for it by my Granddaddy
