A rather heavy package arrived for me today – containing these goodies:
It’s a vintage Singer Automatic Zigzagger attachment with the three full sets of matching cams:
These babies turn my vintage straight-stitch machines into zigzaggers – increasing my range of stitches and fabrics I can work on.
I have the full set of 16 cams (those are the little metal units that make the different stitches) – and each single cam can look very different when the length and width of the stitches are varied. Looking forward to having a play with some fabric when I get the chance.
That won’t be in the next couple of weeks though, as we have family visiting over the next two weekends – which promises to eat up most of my non-working time 🙂
What’s amazing is how heavy the package was. The parts look very small, but due to them being solid metal, the whole bundle weighed just under 2 kilos (4.5 pounds). The postman was rather relieved Trev was at home to collect it!
