A Sewing Machine for my Girlie

I finally got this machine back from Mom’s house.  It’s an old Montgomery Ward Signature, complete with a carrying case.

I think my daughter is going to like it.  Before I let Mom borrow it I had no idea what I had.  I was very intimidated by it so I never really spent much time checking it out.  But now, thanks to Beverly, I am a bit more familiar with sewing machines and not so scared of them.  So I opened it up this morning to clean her up and see what’s under the hood.  I found a burnt up cord coming from the motor.  Well, not burnt up per se.  It was so old that the coating appeared to be just melting off.  That was a little out of my knowledge base, but I knew it wasn’t a good thing.  So dear sweet Husband and I carted it off to the repair shop this afternoon for him to take a looky.  His recommendation was a new motor ~$35.  So a new motor I got:


Along with a new bobbin belt and a bobbin case (since the machine seemed to be missing that very important part.  Out the door cost was $54.02.  Not too bad for an all metal machine that I got for super cheap at the flea market.

How ‘bout some closer views of this sexy kitten.

She seems to be missing something up there.  But she purrs so nice regardless.  I think Marisa will be pleased.
