Pretty Essex Machine

I got a little bit distractacted today I found an old sewing machine at my parents house. It’s so Pretty Im in love. It only uses one thread, no bobbin, that confused me until I found  the manuel in PDF form, Its still in perfect working order.

So I started Looking in to the history of the machine, the strangest thing is that it was made about a 5 min walk from where I am right now, the company premisis is still in Wanstead but they now make coin slots. Im fascinated I loved reading this concise history  here. I couldnt resist visiting the factory as it stands today..

It came in the cutist little case so I gave that a little clean up  too…

I have spent a few years of being lost in flow of life but after a night of Intoxication spent staring at the Burlesque tent at a festival, Ive realised I really used to like to do sewing and making corsets. This is going to be an attempt to document my re interation into the world of a being a seamstress.
