New Machine From Great Grandma

The Pfaff 130 went to Washington state to live with Sparkle Jane. But, I do have backup. This machine belonged to my direct maternal Great Grandmother near the end of her life.

It hasn’t been used much. With a good clean and oil and she is as good as new. Dressmakers were made by Janome in the 50s and 60s, which is likely the era of this machine.

The corner is a little dark, so I found a thrift store lamp. The supply tray attached to the base is wonderful for tools and accessories.

I even made a little pincushion out of a spool and some wool batting scraps.

I made the wallhanging quilt several years ago. The tutorial is HERE. So happy to have another spot in the sewing room neat and cosy.

  1. What a beautiful machine! And how wonderful that you are sewing on the same machine as your great-grandmother did.

  2. My first machine was a Dressmaker. Couldn’t remember the name of it. Used at that time-early 70’s for garment sewing and crafts. When my son was born in ’81, didn’t do much sewing again until 2000 and then started with a Babylock. But the Dressmaker did a lot of garment sewing! Nice extra machine to have!

  3. A good brand. Looks a lot like my 1966 first machine. I hope you have many fine hours of sewing with it.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. It is nice to hear from you.
