our family is growing

Our family of sewing machines, that is. Ruby got a new (used) machine for her birthday, which really rounds out the family dynamics around here.

Grandpa Pfaff's been around and seen the world. He'll hoist you up on his knee and tell you tales of long ago. He's the kind of grandpa who you always run to when you need that stubborn jar lid unscrewed. He's ancient, but tough.

Our new member, Aunt Sing-Sing is a great gal. She's a fun loving auntie, always the first one in the water and the last to get out. She's everyone's favorite, probably because she's so patient and easy going. She remembers when girls wore poodle skirts, and can still admire a fresh Amy Butler print.

And then there's good old cousin Bernie. He pulls up in his race car, willing to give anyone a ride who's willing to hold tight.

You should just see the dinner table when the whole family of sewing machines get together. Needles flying, thread everywhere, and everyone wearing a smile!


  1. oh, i'm so happy for rubes!! tell her high five for me!

    but, i must beg to differ: that would be grandMA Pfaff, and cousin bernADETTE. :)

  2. oh, emily--i love this post! how fun! yay for family sewing. i'm not there yet.

  3. I'm pretty sure cousin Pfaff is comming for a visit today. :)

  4. Too bad the original portable Viking that went to college with you bit the dust.

  5. just wondering what model aunt sing sing is? back in 1970 i was a mear 18yr old high school grad. and landed a job at singers. i taught dressmaking to teenagers and also care and maintenance to everyone that bought a machine.
