Hiya folks, I have been invited here by Badger who I bumped into on Facebook. My husband and I have a smallholding in the Yorkshire Wolds quite close to Scarborough. We are involved in modern farming through our small haulage company that specialises in grain Haulage. We have a small amount of land that is a Camping and Caravaning CL site during the summer and we take store lambs through the winter for our own freezer. We raise pigs during the summer and are lucky to be blessed with mature fruit trees. We have a small flock of chickens and a goose (his good lady unfortunately fed the fox a while ago). We have two fergie T20s which we are using to try to make one useful machine.
I stitch and knit, my faithful sewing machine is a hand crank singer from 1909 and is still in active service.
It's a pleasure to meet you all
Lindsey. Very Happy

Great to meet you, Lindsey. The Singer sounds great. I've got two late '40's or '50's electric at home. I believe they're both 99k, one in a desk, and the other the table top case. Both have worked, but, sadly, the table top one is wildly out of order just now. So, using ANOTHER Singer from mid '70's until we get the other sorted, lol! My mother has one, as well, in the desk type, with treadle. Glad to hear you're still using yours actively.

Hi there Lindsey - great to see someone else form Yorkshire on here. Originally a yorkshire lass and for a while my parents had a cottage up in a village on the edge of the NY moors, just north of Pickering. I love it up there and miss it so much!

Welcome to the forum. Sounds like you've got loads going on up there and I'm looking forward to hearing all about it.

Hi Lindsey from Australia. I also have an old singer (electric) that my grandmother bought in 1945 to sew clothes for my dad, I love it, but have a smashing new one my mum gave me so haven't used the old one much lately.

Thank you everybody for such a warm welcome.
I spend a lot of time in Pickering Mrs.C there is a large antique shop there where I have spent many an hour and a pound buying both things to look at and use.
I look forward to taking a look around the forums though it is very busy here at the moment Our grain bulker has been shifting rock salt so you can imagine after the coldest december in a hundred years there is plenty of work on. On the home front I have my best working black lab bitch hopefully in pup to one of the leading gundogs in britain and I am getting unreasonably obsessed with trimming the paddock hedge before the sap starts rising. I should still find the time to get to know you all.
Very Happy
