Invention of the Sewing Machine - the sewing machine was developed by Isaac Singer. This was one of the first domestic appliances made. The sewing machine was really put to work during the Civil War when there was a huge demand for ready-to-wear uniforms.
Vintage sewing machine - hey this kind of reminds me of my first sewing machine, the one my mother taught me how to sew on , just not as old! I have a turquoise Viking Husquavarna that seriously needs a service call!
Years ago I saw a antique sewing machine and table like this in a thrift shop window and it was already white (it looked like it was factory painted, not a home amateur job). It was there for months and I finally broke down and went in to buy it only to see another woman loading it into her car. It was only $188 but I had no room for it in my apartment at the time. I'm still looking for it's twin.
