This is my first attempt at free-motion stitching. It's taken me long enough to jump on the bandwagon, hasn't it?
I have a wonderful old sewing machine that will still be sewing when we are all dead and gone. It's a Canadian White Domestic, about 60 years old, and weighing about 60 pounds. It's meant to go in a cabinet, I think; it's definitely not a portable, although it comes in a nifty carrying case. It's only drawback is that it has one stitch, a straight stitch, that goes forward and backward. I bought a darning foot for it today, so that I could do the free-motion stitching; it's first foot, other than the regular presser foot.
