Op Shop Find!

When walking the dogs last week, I saw this cute little machine in the 
window of a local op shop. By the time got home, it was opening time 
for the shop. I gave them a call and asked for it to be put behind the 
counter for me as I didn't want to miss out before I got there. 
After having a closer look, it came home with me.
It is a 1940's machine manufactured by the EL Grain Sewing Machines Ltd 
in Nottingham, England. You can read about them here
The plate is a bit scratched but I don't care. It's now sitting on top of the 
cupboard of my Anker treadle machine I rescued from the skip a little while ago. 

Noel just rolled his eyes when he spotted "another machine"!
