Shortly after arriving here in Saskatchewan, I realized that I was going to really miss being without a sewing machine for the entire summer. So, the hunt was on for a new-to-me vintage machine that was inexpensive and that wouldn't require a lot of work to get up and running. After stalking Kijiji for over a week, the perfect machine finally appeared:
Isn't it gorgeous?! I paid just $25 for this handsome blue machine. It's a Japanese-made machine, badged Coronado, and was "Sold Exclusively by MacLeod's Limited" (according to the round badge on the front). It came with a bunch of extra bobbins, and not much else, no manual or anything. These machines are pretty straight-forward, though, and take standard needles and low-shank feet, so I'm not too worried about it.
On a side note, how do you like the green background? I chose it because it reminds me of summertime at home, with the trees all in full leafy green-ness. There's a severe lack of green out here on the prairies!
