Treasures you don’t expect to find

I love a garage sale – the thrill of the chase, the treasures you find, the ridiculous prices.  This had been in storage for a good many years.  It was dusty and the case a bit dented.






But for $25, how could I lose?  The lady who’d carefully put it into storage also had this:








That is a  box of 28 decorative stitch cams.

Unfortunately, we have some sort of a mix up.






That is both a knee drive controller thingy and a plug that most definitely needs a foot.  There’s no hole for the knee drive and there’s no foot.  It also seems to be missing a drive belt.  Neither can I find a name or serial number.  I’ve googled it and can’t find a picture of it on the interwebs.  For now, it’s the Pinnock Mystery.

I shall take it to the sewing machine repair man and see what can be done.


Last day Potters Textiles sale – Wed 8th Feb

If you haven’t been you need to go tomorrow, if you’ve been you need to go again as they have been putting out new stuff every day.  Then they will be putting out the winter fabrics and you will have to go again!

They are located at 12 MacEwan Street, West Perth around the corner from Jean Claude’s patisserie.  Open from 10am to 4pm Mon to Fri.
