a brilliant charity. Made in 1946, it is in perfect working order and sews such a beautiful stitch. I've already used it to make my Aubépine dress (more on that another time) and I couldn't love it more. It means that I can sew in the house, at the dining room table, instead of being relegated to the (cold) sewing shed. Don't get me wrong - I love my shed for quilting, but dressmaking is much nicer indoors. Especially when you have to keep trying things on. Brrrr.
