Re: Vintage Sewing Tools: The Singer Bound Buttonhole Maker

My mother, who was a wonderful seamstress, had one of these. I found it in her sewing room and now it's in my stash. I haven't checked for the papers, but I wouldn't be surprised if she used it. She did some amazing tailoring before she went back to work in the early '60s. She made all her own clothes and a lot of mine, as well as slipcovers, drapes, and upholstery...all on her 1940 Singer Featherweight (which I also still have, in its original case WITH handle!).

Re: Tangerine Tango

I HATE ORANGE on anything but fruit and autumn leaves. I have no regard for Pantone at all, and this just confirms my feeling that they're off in a cloud someplace. Disgusting.
However, on the other hand, then I won't be tempted to buy any new clothes or fabric.
