I'm pleased to introduce you to Little A. He's a vintage button press rescued from a dusty workshop in India many years ago. I've had him now for nearly 4 years and he's a pleasure to use. Yes he's a little noisy cos you have to really slam the leaver down to cut through layers of fabric. And yes that really upsets the furry one. But....I guarantee if you are feeling a little blue or mayble just a bit befuddled half an hour with Little A will cheer you up. Bonus is you get a big stash of perfect fabric covered buttons and an excuse to get the 70s wallpaper out to make the backing cards.
Anyone else got an old favourite machine or tool in the craft room/workshop that never fails to lift the spirits?
