Red Runner

Christmas table runner for a lucky family member.

The green fabric is the backside of the runner.

All the fabric but the poinsettia fabric came from my mom. This is a fun way of recycling fabric.

Sewing room

My command center as my husband calls it. The Singer 201 is on the left, the Singer 15-90 in treadle is on the right, and the National Two Spools is located center in the Singer straight leg treadle.

My 201 in its treadle.

My Mr. Two Spools in his Singer treadle. My husband rigged up a way for the machine to sit in the cabinet since the National Two Spools machine doesn't fit a Singer cabinet.

One down two more to go!
