I love verge…no, I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVVVVVVVE VERGE!!! I’m a hopeless scrounger, and if you know where to look you can get some fabulous finds. Last year someone had their entire fabric stash on the verge! Now it’s in my stash 😛
But, this year beats all former verges. I found a vintage Singer 401G from the late fifties/early sixties on Marlow Street during my daily bike commute to work. I almost fell of my ebike with excitement and utter shock. Needless to say it came to work with me an then home – all in the back of the basket. She doesn’t have a power cord or foot petal, but these things can be found online – a really good source for vintage sewing machine parts and a fab blog about restoration can be found here.
Feast your eyes!
She’s beautiful, eh? I plan to start tinkering soon, so stay tuned to my blog for more restoration details. Hopefully the motor is good, but we’ll see once the power arrives!
