Singer Talent – My New Designing Companion :)


My dearest Tantu reader, how are you? I know, I know, you were waiting for the update here since last week. I am very sorry! I was so busy with my new designing companion Singer Talent that I didn’t realise how fast one week flew and I skipped a post!

My Singer Talent

My Singer Talent

I was gifted this Singer Talent Automatic Sewing Machine by my darling husband on 2nd March, exactly 20 days before my B’day. We don’t have the habit of gifting as such except for showering love up on each other (as usual) on the special days. But, there is a history behind this gift…

I always wished to buy an automatic sewing machine. After my marriage, when I brought my manual sewing machine along with, Venu wanted to buy an automatic one for me. But, I had refused. My plan was to buy one myself. My earnings had stopped since I left my teaching profession soon after getting committed to Venu. My dream was to take up designing as my career and I took up blogging as my platform. So, my automatic sewing machine still remained in the showroom.

Meanwhile Venu tried a lot to change my mind. After two years three months and sixteen days, finally he won! Reason he gave was that I didn’t demand big things and I hadn’t spend much from his pocket. That ‘unspent’ amount he was willing to invest. I got defeated this time too! Yes, this is the second time 🙁

No worries! I have a new wish now, that is to buy either Singer Futura XL-400 or Usha Dream Maker 120 🙂 and I would buy it!

I am enjoying sewing in Singer Talent. Till date I have completed sewing 2 sari blouses and few more are in progress. The most expensive jewellery making project so far I have done, is 90% complete 🙂 🙂 🙂

At the same time, I become nostalgic looking at my Novel Machine. Let me pat him and tell l that I would take his assist at times! Look at him, now he is very happy 🙂

  1. Hello Sindhu 🙂 What a fabulous present from your husband! It certainly looks like your new Singer Talent is going to prove a very useful companion when you are designing – a Talent sewing machine for a talented lady 🙂 The embroidery on your blouse sleeve is really lovely.
