Meet my new Singer sewing machine, which my dear father-in-law gave to me. It's old (the manual is from 1983), simple and exactly what I wanted!
See, I've been wanting a sewing machine for years now, and finally with my own room (I guess we adults should call it an office... so my office) I have enough space for it! Hooray!
It really is a simple machine with all the stitches a beginning sewer may need and more, things like a buttonhole program and a special foot for zippers.
