It's a pretty straight forward piece of equipment the spindle spins but it also moves up and down to make a smoother finish. You can pop the sleeves on and off and it has a dust collection port in the back to which you can attach a bag to collect dust. So far so good.
This is my progress on my square toed pumps. I really have improved since I made my first pair in January. ALOT.
Now for the sewing machine well it hasn't arrived yet. I was "inspired" to purchase it after reading about Maddie's new restored Singer Featherweight which as a result of some kind of sewing perverseness she had mailed to her parent's home for a xmas present. I do NOT have that level of restraint.
I had remember that some Singer's can be converted to handcrank. Not a featherweight because those have an geared motor. No I needed one that was belt driven. I finally snagged a Singer 99k and ordered the crank parts. The machine is set to be delivered on friday so we'll see how that goes.
