A new baby!

I would like to introduce you to my new baby, Rosebud!  I had been longing for this addition to my sewing room for quite some time.  I needed a small, reliable, manageable and cost effective 3/4 sized machine and she is all of this for me!

Rosebud is a Sears Kenmore 1040.  It is a 3/4 size and is very lightweight.  I wanted to have her so I would not be hauling around a HUGE machine.  This is only a couple pounds more than a Singer Featherweight ( I have one by the timing is off).

My lovely little girl was born in Japan :o)

I am amazed at how clean she is through and through.  I found a reliable ebay shop that I bought her from.  amazing 593  went above and beyond with packaging her up for shipping!  I was extremely impressed with how everything was handled.  Every ebay seller should take a class from this one!  Top notch!

Even her case is about the most adorable thing I have ever seen! With the roses, it reminded me of my friend Roseann Meehan Kermes who owns Rosebud's Cottage.  Roseanne is a wonderful person and a mentor to many.  It felt right to name this machine for her.  My own little Rosebud :o)

There is also a hidden storage under the flap

and all of these accessories came included!

The one thing Rosebud came without was a bobbin, so I will have to share her sewing skills on another day.  I think she is tired from her long journey so I set her up on my sewing table this evening for a rest and to get used to her new home :o)

For a full review and EVERYTHING you could ever want to know about this beauty ( and after reading the review you will want one) please visit Stitch Nerd!

I have one of these, too! Love the carrying case! On mine, the end flips up to extend out a little. I bought mine at a garage sale and need to take her in for a "tune up." I can't seem to get the stitch length adjusted or drop the feed dogs. If you need a manual for her, you can find one on line for free. Not sure where I found it, though.

she looks a very welcome addition to your home, I love my featherweight I bought a couple of months ago but still find it a bit heavy for taking on the bus to a quilt group.

Love her and love her name! Sounds like you two have already bonded. :)
