Scultures are brewing (I think)
As much as I love (and am quite challenged by) the painting work that I’ve doing, I still can’t get away from my desire to work more “hands on”. Couldn’t resist this picking this old Singer 328k pretty cheaply from an estate sale two weeks ago, along with a bag of vintage embroidery pattern transfers circa 1900-1940s. While I have been ever so slowly teaching myself garment construction on my regular sewing machine, this sewing machine screams “Make some sculptures with me!!!” Well, if I can get it up and running that is. So far, I’ve been able to get it from not running at all (totally locked up), to running inconsistently. So far I have taken the machine apart, cleaned and oiled to best of my amateur ability, and taken the handwheel and belt off to clean and inspect. Hoping more tlc is all that’s needed, else I’m running out of ideas :).
