Special Things Come Home to Roost

There was another reason, besides the treadle machine irons, that DH & I went on our recent road trip.  I was being gifted a very special item.

That lives in this case
I would like to introduce you to the newest member of my sewing machine family

This is "Witchery".  Her name comes from our dear friend who had her for many years, and a play on the old, non-sewing, iron-on hemming product, Stitch Witchery. Another W for the herd!   

She is a 1952 model in beautiful condition!  Witchery will NOT be repainted! She will be the resident black FW.  Her  finish and decals are in fantastic shape, just a few little rubs on the finish from 64 years of use. 

I'll be getting to know her better during the upcoming Mystery Quilt. 


  1. A gorgeous machine... in such good condition!

  2. I am so pleased that my FW girl has gone to live and sew at your house. Hugs!
