My birthday gift June 20, 2010Posted by Judy in Sewing projects.

I’ve still been trolling CL, just to see what’s out there and because it’s just fun. I happened to see a sewing desk that I really liked, and it was only $25. I thought “aha, here’s what I can do with my birthday money!” So I bought it, and yes, it came with a machine: Singer Touch and Sew 640. Not a great machine, IMHO since there are many plastic components. But it did work quite well when I tested it out. Basically, it’s a more modern version of the 401, with plastic parts.
The table was originally maple or oak or something, and the lady I bought it from painted it in black, which I quite like. She also recovered the chair, so it’s a nice looking little ensemble. My original idea was to use it as an actual desk, storing the computers and other stuff there, but after actually getting the table, I realized that wasn’t going to work. So, it’s going to remain a sewing desk, that will live right next to DS’s sewing machine.
