    Now, if I had stuck with my old Singer instead of going the electric route, I would still be able to sew. Instead of which the motor on my machine recently caught fire and cannot be repaired…

    I do enjoy the Kinks, thank you.

    • But was your old Singer hand or treadle powered?

      I also enjoy these old Kinks songs: I love their casual insouciance!

    Hand though I did frequently use a treadle too.

    • Treadle-powered sewing machines seem to be the norm here. It appears they last forever!
