I can't brag on these vintage machines enough - so reliable and hardworking! I've had this one for about five years. It's very very rare that I have to take it in for repairs, most of the upkeep and fixing you can do yourself.

As you can probably tell, it's hard for me to pass up a good deal on fabric.
I'll find a use for it all one of the days!

And finally, inside my closet lies more shelves filled with pattern storage boxes (very handy for categorizing!)
And - more fabric. :^)
Each pattern box has a category - costumes, 1860s historical, modern, vintage 40s, vintage 50s, etc.
Some day I'd love to have my own 'studio' room (or rooms....) just for sewing, but for now I'm enjoying my newly organized sewing space.
