introducing Violet Kenmore

Rescued from the thrift store for less than $20, I almost left her there since I had just bought a pricey bernina 930. I am so glad I brought her home! The 930 is still giving me fits but Violet never lets me down. I just finished quilting the jelly roll quilt on her and she never hesitated or skipped a stitch! No puckers either! Violet is a Kenmore model 52 and came with all her accessories. After the holidays I will be trying to get my money back out of the Bernina. I will piece on my featherweight or 301 and keep Violet set up for quilting. Now I need to get busy sewing some binding. I'm making good progress finishing up all my Christmas gifts.

I love some of the old machines you can find at the thrift store. They are such workhorses! Good find!
