Telecast Thursday - Card Tables and Vintage Singer Sewing Machines

Welcome to Telecast Thursday! Today I'd like to show you one of my recent acquisitions. No, I haven't taken up card playing - I lose too often against my son - but this is actually an accessory for one of my vintage Singer sewing machines. 

You may see this type of table at garage sales and it looks like a regular card table, but there is a slight difference: there's a cut-out in the top of it.

Do you know what it's for? If you don't, watch the video below or on my Youtube channel to find out.

I think this would be the perfect table to use with my Singer Featherweight 221 to do some outdoor sewing this summer. I just need to sand down the edge and refinish it with some black paint - sounds like another summer project.

If you're wondering about the acrylic piece screwed into the Featherweight bed, it's Nova Montgomery's Sew Straight guide. It's perfect to use as a fabric guide and can be easily adjusted for various seam widths. The best part is that it doesn't scratch the machine bed and I like that! Order one from Nova and tell her Kim sent you.
