summary The Sewing Machine

The Sewing Machine free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Er life into a notebook as her mother did before herMore than 100 years after his grandmother’s sewing machine was made Fred discovers a treasure trove of documents His. When I was little I remember standing by my mom s side watching her sew me and my sister new clothes When I was about 10 we went to an auction and my mom bought this old Singer sewing machine wood with little drawers on the side I thought it was for decoration but this was a machine for me to learn on I am not sure what ever happened to this old machine I am sure it was sold again on an auction Many years later my husband would by me a new Singer and that is what I uilt on today But it is the thought of sitting up to this old relic of a machine when I was 10 and 12 years old with the little knee presser that I remember when I sewThe Sewing Machine follows the life of a 1911 model Singer sewing machine the multi generational book of inspector sewer and later grandson The story begins with Jean Cameron a final inspector for Singer in the days of 1911 when the Singer factory is about to go on strike But on her last day she sets a secret message in her last machine That machine is bought by Kathleen who sews on it to make ends meet and starts the very vast collection of books of everything sewn on the machine It is then handed down to her daughter Connie and then to her grandson Fred The only criticism I have is the ending of course not all books end the way you want but this one kind of left me hanging I wanted it to continue a few chapters to bring all the ties together This was an enjoyable read especially if you are a sewer But not just to follow the life of one machine to follow the life tribulations joys and discoveries of these charactersThank you to Netgalley the publisher and Natalie Fergie for letting me read this in exchange for my honest review

Focusing on the lives of three characters Jean Connie and Fred along with the people close to them The Sewing Machine transports the reader from 1911 to the modern day In telling the stories of the various characters the author provides a wealth of domestic detail relevant to the specific period giving a real feeling of authenticity On the other hand at times the narrative skips over significant periods of and momentous events in their lives with the gaps only filled towards the end of the book I had a few When did that happen moments There were some events such as the strike at the Singer factory that I would actually have liked to learn aboutThere were details in the book that I absolutely loved such as the entries in the notebook recording garments made on the sewing machine that often told their own sad story The introduction of a new character later in the book cleverly brings the various stories together I also liked how the sewing machine is shown to represent different things to different people a solace a distraction a source of employment a symbol of frugality a key to friendship and a source of artistic inspirationThe author possesses an obvious gift for creating realistic characters I loved Jean and Connie but I have to say I struggled a bit with Fred initially I was even tempted to sympathise with his girlfriend Samantha at one point but that uickly passed And the author did eventually her work her magic on me As the book went on and Fred is gradually drawn out of himself particularly with the help of the family next door I began to warm to him In a way he is the character who grows the most during this charming heartwarming bookI received a review copy courtesy of publishers Unbound and Random Things Tours
