Calling all thrifting friends


Hello Ladies: I need your help please I recently acquired this beauty Singer model 348 after hunting one down for a little over a year and now that it's here there is so much more it has to offer than just sitting here at home looking pretty!
I need an owners manual for it, after spending a few hours googling and surfing e-bay for one I got a headache. If anyone has information or an extra manual laying around (wishful thinkin) please let me know, this gal is willing to pay for it, or we can trade a child...just kidding. Seriously I can't wait to start sewing! I was able to wind up a spool easily, the motor seems strong but when I thread it and attempt to sew it bunches up and fabric gets eaten from the drop in bobbin area! ugghhhh!! so frustrating . Maybe I'm not threading it right so I must have patience.


Please excuse that top pic of my kitchen table I swear you could usually eat off of it, just not this day! hahaha
oh yeah here's my sewing basket semi-filled


















and this little beauty was a freebie pattern from this lovely gal http://www.flickr.com/photos/jennyhart/3489526885/

























it was so much fun stitching. It's actually completed but I'll have to show you tomorrow or the next day, my little sis surprised me today all the way from Miami - very nice surprise. We have a fun filled weekend planned that includes sewing & thrifting!
May you have a wonderful weekend whatever you do, until next time
