To celebrate, dad got me a present. Could you guess what's in it? ;)
At first I thought it was just an old suitcase, which I would have been happy with too. But then I lifted it and it weighed really heavy. So my heartbeat began to raise.. And when I opened it.. I squealed of happiness! It's a 1960 vintage Phoenix sewing machine!
She's such a beauty! She dates back from the time when machinery was made to last forever. I've never seen a sewing machine running so smoothly. Modern plastic technology can't beat this iron craftmanship. Next year when I'll be studying Law in Ghent I'm going to take sewing classes. Maybe in a few years you'll be all paying hundreds of euro's for a real 'Yunes'. ;)
On youtube I found this commercial from 1960 promoting the Phoenix. How cool is that?
Are there readers who make their own clothes? Would you like to learn to? Leave a comment!
Thx for reading!
