I'd be strung up if I was overheard to call thread ... "string".

That's barely survivable, but don't ever make the mistake of calling a quilt, a "blanket". That's a sure-fire death sentence.

And, I thought hobbies were supposed to be about having fun. Who knew needles could be sew dangerous.

Ha Ha ... Enjoy.

Oh you got me on the "sew" "RB"! Great one!
Sewing is becoming a very lost art! The composition is so well done. Nice colors, excellent POF and it looks like one on them olde time sewing machines..not the computer types!
Great entry!!!

Thanks Dan.

The machine is a longarm, built like a tank (frame looks more like an erector set).
Comes from the same manufacturer that builds industrial machines for mattress making companies.

Nothing fancy, just a well-oiled, workhorse ... yet, very nimble.

Yeah, we've got some that are over 100 years old, that are functional. Multiple that are vintage 1930's - 1950's that see regular use (Singer featherweights) and put out a great stitch. When you open up the featherweights and peek inside to see the cams, etc. ... they are just really, really "tight and right". Small, but dang strong and precise. I'll have to shoot the innards, sometime for show & tell.

That saying about a "well oiled sewing machine" ... there's a reason it came to be said.
