I am not getting to any stitching, as our family support of my husband's aunt is continuing. A visit this week involved sorting out various items that she would no longer use, or that were too much of a reminder of her very active hobbies before her stroke. As they say, it is an ill wind, as part of the clearing out revealed,
which you may have identified as a centenary edition Singer Featherweight 221K1, made in 1951, in Clydebank, about 1.5 miles from where I was born.
It is in pristine condition, with all attachments, but has some sort of electrical fault that I will now get fixed. It was bought by my husband's grandmother, so both I and my aunt are very excited at the thought of it being in use again.
