I have collected several toy sewing machines over the years, and I do have a favorite. It is this little Stitch Mistress.
It was made in the 1940’s and the reason it is my favorite is it belonged to my Mother-in-law when she was a child. Because I know the history, it is more than just a collectible. It is a story. Sandra very graciously gave it to me a few years ago.
I display my little collection along with some of the wooden spools I’ve purchased. The larger spools make great pedestals.
