I was so excited when I was home in Australia to find out that my mum still has the sewing machine she bought me at the local second hand shop when I began to learn to sew! My Grandmother had it for a few years but once she passed away it was returned to mum.
The machine I learned to sew on!
It is a Singer 99k in a bentwood box. It is in the best condition of any old Singer I've seen, almost like new. Mum's keeping it for me, yahoo!
