A Crafty Little Find…
When sorting through the garage I found this beast...
It’s an Alfa sewing machine dating back to god knows when.
It works sort of, but is very old and worn. You get the idea.
Plus I already have a fully working Brother sewing machine that has served me well for the past 5years.
So do I keep this for the nostalgia sake or do I get rid? I don’t know much about this machine, and it’s obviously not a Singer. (Which secretly one day I long to own a vintage black Singer sewing machine)
I looked Alfa up online and not much came up to be honest, this makes me think maybe there not such a well known brand after all. It too doesn’t really have much of an heirloom factor, as far as I know it didn’t belong to any relative of mine, it was just given to us a few years back.
So my thoughts were to send it to the tip, after all it’s too heavy to take anywhere and unlikely to sell.
But then I have this mad idea to just keep it and have it on display. Which is quite odd to say the least. I mean it’s not exactly small and discreet. I just don’t know.
What do you think? Scrap or keep
