Moving moving


I got someone to get this down from the cupboard yesterday -- it's one of a kind.

Based on the Soviet star, it was made during the Soviet era at the former Singer Podolsk sewing machine factory in Russia. I was actually able to visit the factory before we left in 2001.

I needed to take some photos of the decals before the machine gets packed up. But now I really should get back to those thumbs.

That's really a great find; I've never seen a sewing machine like that. Is it still in working conditions? I see that it's threaded…
