My friend Jan went and helped her mom with her yard sale last month. Jan knows what I like and I asked her to keep an eye out for me. And just look at this bit of wonderfulness that she brought into my shop!
It is a big spool of thread and a small sewing machine. Aren't they cute together! I love how the wooden spool is aged so nicely. And the sewing machine is hand cranked with little suction cups on the feet for a bit of stability. I wonder if it was a successful design. A Genero Product.
I love that she had the instruction book too. Made in Long Beach, California. Don't you just love it! Thanks Jan, you are the best.
p.s. both spool and sewing machine are about 6" high, with the spool of thread being a bit taller.
