A tribute to Singer sewing machines

My sister, an artist who works with fabric, loves the gentle click, click, click of her hand operated Singer, a no nonsense unembellished model, still stitching after eighty years of use.

Her recent acquisition, bought from an avid collector and fellow artist, sits on a Singer Treadle table that she already had.

Enshrined the corner this simple machine pays tribute to their creative work.

“At least if there’s a power outage, we’ll still be working away on our Singers.”

By Jude Tulloch

An outsider contemporary artist, I revel in exploring ideas through visual mediums and pushing the boundaries of my creative practice. In life, I strive for balance, by caring for the earth, practicing Tai Chi and learning about the world through travel.
