Sew use­ful

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

SURELY the best house­hold in­ven­tion be­fore sliced bread must have been the sewing ma­chine (Let­ters, Jan­uary 25)—it en­abled mil­lions of women to make things needed in the home and saved so much time. When I was mar­ried 63 years ago, I was given an old Jones sewing ma­chine (above), which is now 103 years old and still go­ing strong.

Re­cently, one of my sons used it to mend the can­vas on an an­cient army camp bed—there’s no way my light­weight, 20-year-old elec­tric ma­chine would have been up to the task. Pa­tri­cia Will­mott, Bed­ford­shire
