Its a lovely little thing, we've only had it serviced once in 20 years, and that was for the tension knob. Its pottered along like a lovely little solid dear, and has always been lovely to sew on.
I recently started playing with all of the cams that it came with, which were misplaced when we recently moved house. These are them, all 5 with a different stitch on them. I'm more of a knitter than a sewer, but I am getting into quilting of late. And cams made that very exciting!
So, all of my cams with various stitch lengths or widths, and it shows a lot more stitches than I knew existed! My favourite is possibly the straight st with occasional zig-zags, making sewing quilt bindings on much much easier! There are a lot of fun sts that I can use for things, especially some nice decorative patterns :)
All in all, I've had a lot of fun with my sewing machine over the years, and I intend to keep using it for a long time to come! However, it was very fun while house sitting to have a play with what I think of as a fancy and excitingly new sewing machine, the Pfaff tipmatic 1035, which we think is from about 1985 :)
In knitting news, I've put CBBK out to block, cast on a Trellis cardigan for Oscar, and started the second of my sister's leg warmers. So much christmas knitting to do! I still need to start a pair of socks and a pair of gloves that I'm not sure how to do yet... Possibly just embroidered is the way to go?
