Another colorful vintage sewing machine.
We went out to dinner on Saturday night and noticed a new thrift shop next door so we took a look around and came up on 5 industrial sewing machines, a professional garment cutting machine and lots of (new) lace, trim, zippers, and elastic. Turns out the owner is a tailor and downsizing his equipment, he told us this machine was his mothers and has not been used in many years. Anyway, this is a Wizard Custom zig zagger in a pretty blue color apparently made by Brother. I will have to research this further.
Isn’t it gorgeous? Well it will be after I’m done with it – it needs major cleaning.
It is unbelievably grimy & the electrical cord is all dry and cracked and will need replacing. The finish is in good condition however there are a few nicks in the paint. Nothing I can do about that as I never retouch the paint on old sewing machines. Well, except for this one. Off to get started on making it shiny and new. 🙂
