My Lamp SEWS!!!

Remember my sewing machine/lamp/nightlight?


It SEWS!!!!


A little oil, some persuasion, a bobbin case, a new needle, an adjustment to the take up tension spring, and she sews!!! Here are the top stitches.


Here are the bottom stitches.


I turned the hand wheel by hand to make the stitches, but just to make the machine fully functional, I bought a hand crank kit for it today.


I love my sewing machine lamp!!! Thank you a million times, Jack and Polly!


cheerful giver

There's nothing like a good sew with a good light. I just love that lamp! What a good idea. I'm looking at mine now and wondering if Handyman would like another project! Seriously!

Nothing better that a good sew with good lighting. I just love that lamp. I'm looking at my vintage lamp now, and wondering how Handyman would like a new project. Seriously!
