Did you know this was a holiday? I confess, I didn’t until this morning and then I had to check to make sure it was true! Mr. Wonderful made it home safely from Germany this morning and we went to an art fair and some antique shops this afternoon. He spotted this little darling and it came home with us.
It is a 1920’s Little Worker made by the New Home Company. It is not actually a toy but sold as “a practical sewing machine or portable for travelers.” Apparently, quilting retreats were popular even in the 20’s. Ha!
When he got to the checkout, they told him there was a cabinet that went with it.
This is a Martha Washington sewing table and never originally came with this machine. But who am I to quibble over a free vintage sewing table?
I think I will spiff it up and put it by my chair for Slow Stitching Sundays!
Hmm, Terri & I saw one of those Martha Washington tables & thought it was a scam! Guess
we better brush up on our skills if we want to score some fun stuff.
Wow! A great find! Good quilt husbands are a treasure!
I have an identical little table at the top of my stairway. Purchased it many years ago. My grandmother had one identcal to it. Love it!
I love the machine and cabinet! Hugs,
What a fantastic FIND, Katy! That hubby of yours is something else!
Who knew? I’d better go keep my machine company. : )
I didn’t realize it was a holiday either, although I did spend the day on the sewing room, giving my machine a workout. 😉 Cute little machine and awesome “matching” cabinet.
I call that a very good day!
