Long time no posting. I’ve been busy trying to live an organized life, but failed yet again. However, I found out what I want this blog to be about, how I want it to look like and now I just can’t stop thinking about it!!!
So what better way to restart my little journal of all things handmade, than to introduce you all to the new addition to my robotic family. Welcome the TOYOTA 555!
Last night my Dad found it exactly where we first lived when I moved to London 5 years ago. It was attached to its desk/cabinet, which after some persuasion found its new -temporary- home in the garage where my Dad keeps his hoard.
According to this manual for the machine, it can do all kinds of embroidery and quilting that my regular (also Toyota, what a coincidence!) can’t, since you can adjust the lengths of stitches in both ways on this one. IN THEORY. Yep, there is one part missing from the lovely package, and that’s the pedal, of course…
So if anyone knows where I can find one, or the year the machine was made (I’m curious like that), please give me a shout!
