I recently picked up this beautiful gem, and the best part - it works, and does so beautifully!
|Brother Galaxie 230|
It's a 1959 Brother Galaxie 230 (in my favorite color too!). A heavy, solid piece, complete in it's own table! I think my mom still has one of these, tucked away under her newer machine. I love how the table folds out and is flush with the needle plate - so great for sewing wallets and large pieces like quilts.
I love all the knobs and settings - it makes me feel like I'm stepping into another, forgotten world for a brief moment.
Where are all our sewing shops now, DC? And what happened, Good Housekeeping?
And what I love the most are the extras - complete manuals and a little wooden box full of attachments and feet! How cool!
|I don't even know what all these feet are for.|
|How cool is this?|
A welcome addition to my little sewing world - a beautiful, strong (not to mention turquoise) machine that has stood the test of time.
