What fun. I loved all the pattern pieces for clothing hung up on the wall in the second one.

Thanks for the memories. I worked in a Singer Sewing Center when I was in high school.
And my father bought the beautiful, black 301 a for my mother from a door to door salesman.
How funny, the dialogue is! But such lovely finishing school accents.
Thanks for the chuckle.

If my DH said my house looked a mess, he'd be living in the shed.

I'm curious about the second one; the roof...Is that thatched? Would this have been filed in Canada? Because I don't believe there were thatched roofs in the US in 1940

Oh, the trouble I'd be in if the machines came to my door unsolicited.

I remember the Singer Sewing Center. My oldest sister took a sewing course there and my DM purchased her 201-2 from there in about 1954 or 1955. DS made a dress and the store held a fashion show/competition at the end of the class. She won first place at that particular store (she won a piece of furniture - looked almost like a bedside table with drawers to the floor for storage of thread, notions, etc.), and her dress was sent off for a regional contest. She also won that contest and was the proud recipient of a featherweight sewing machine. DM used that machine for a few years until my sister married and took it with her. That's when she got her 201-2. Both machines are still in use and in good condition.
