My cousin's wife, Michelle, brought me a gift that was left in a rental house, this 1953 Singer Sew Handy Model 2 sewing machine complete with an owner's manual. I've been coveting these at flea markets for years. It's a real machine - not a toy. In true 50's verbage it reads, "Using this machine you will learn the basic principals of machine sewing, first making your dolly's clothes and perhaps small gift articles; then your own play clothes, shorts, pinafores, skirts, and clothes for little sister." How sweet.
