I dream of "Genie".



A 1970's Retro sewing machine which I just "WON" on e-bay. This small machine is so cute, I just couldn't resist! [Called both "Genie" and "Starlet" , this "hippie" machine goes to show how having orange flowers makes the day for some of us! Flower power! It may have been made in France...according to the foot control.]
It has a carrying case which makes it easy to store and transport. I first saw this model when a customer brought one into the shop for a clean and service. It sews five different stitches....like a Singer Featherweight with zig zag and stretch stitches too. Now it is mine!!!!!



I know that one day, it may be given to my granddaughter who is interested in sewing!

Awww that is just so darn cute. I love the flowers. But then, I have a bead curtain in the doorway of the master bath - so my hippy-ness shows through every now and then.

What a great machine.

What a great "win"....I love the orange flowers!

I have two older Singers....one from the 70's and the other one is much older. The portable case on it is made of wood.

And I don't even sew very much!

Congratulations on the win! Lila I get along better with the older sewing machines. They are easier to use. Fancy gadgets don't really get along with me.

Oh how cute, I never saw a machine like that. Granddaughter will love it when she "inherits" it.
