My sincere thanks to Aaron Waldner for all the before photos. Meet Pinky before:
The motor was an ugly blue and the pink paint was not in pristine good condition.custom cabinet made for my Pfaff Creative 2, it was built by Green Acres Builders in Wawanesa Manitoba. The desktop cover over the machine shelf was painted breast cancer pink.
Then I bought a used cabinet for her.
The tension spring is also pink. Pretty cool eh?
Pinky sews a lovely straight stitch and her feed dogs can be lowered for free motion quilting.
A pink sewing machine was a must have for my vintage sewing machine collection. These Japanese clones are plentiful and inexpensive. Pinky is all metal, very heavy and strong. With the new paint job and better cabinet she'll be loved and enjoyed in my craft emporium for years. ~dancing around the room with glee~
Dear Readers, What are your thoughts are painting vintage sewing machines? Have you ever had one custom painted?
