Pfaff 360 Automatic
Well today I decided to go back to the same thrift store just to see if they had any old knitting needles. When I purchased my new home sewing machine I also picked up a pair of metal knitting needles from Czechoslovakia which I thought were pretty cool. Well today I found a cool ruler, a red crochet hook, and on my way back to the furniture section I found another sewing machine. This on is a Pfaff 360 Automatic in its cabinet and it works!!! I fell in love with it, when I got it home I realized that it had its original manual with it and its original date stamped tag from the manufacturer. It was made in Germany on the 28th of March 1963. How cool is that! I'm pretty excited. As I was exciting the thrift store an older lady informed me of a sewing machine repair shop just around the corner that gives lessons to folks with older machines. It sounds cheesy but with these two old machines I keep thinking about the folks that would have used them and what they might have made with them. Its like a little treasure trove of craftiness history sitting in my house, waiting to be used again, I wonder what I'll make first????
