Waste Not Want Not Wednesday: Why Would I Want Another?

This is my sewing machine. Nothing fancy, just your basic stitches. I got this sewing machine as a gift from my husband in the mid 80's. It is my long-time companion and workhorse. Why would I want another? This Kenmore and I know each other, we know what our likes and dislikes are, we know how to work together. I can't imagine ever casting off such a good friend simply because something new and flashy popped up. The more bells and whistles there are on something the more I scratch my head when I need to use it.

Friends, remember just because it is new doesn't mean it is better.


  1. I definitely agree - I still have my (even plainer) Kenmore sewing machine from the 80s...

  2. If you ever post a photo please point me to it. I love seeing others' old friends. :)

  3. I have a Kenmore from the 80s too!!! It gets cranky sometimes, but then I think even the new machines do too!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog :)


  4. These old Kenmores are wonderful.
