I was just about to ask how you managed to get an old car into your loft — and why...

They built these as well as cars as far as I know

I've just given my wife's 55 year old "Brother" away for nothing. Wonder if there was anything in it?

My missus used one for years - the kids used to love getting the big foot treadle into action.

One thing about the early Singers in particular was that they were excellent examples of engineering and quality manufacture.

Many are still in regular use, especially in third world countries.

We have an old Singer in our loft, even looks identical to the one pictured.

I wouldn't sell it though not for a million, it holds special memories for me, my grandmother used to use it when i was a child and i can remember watching her use it.

Also has a fascinating story with it.
When my grandmother used it back when she lived in her croft in the highlands it used to start sewing on its own late at night,

Also she told us that sometimes you could hear tapping from it like someone knocking on it.

Now that im older i guess the stories were to keep us kids away from it as it was dangerous.

Certainly worked, we were terrified of the sewing machine ghost.
