We are the Kranky People . . . because we like our old hand crank sewing machines!
Let me introduce you to my Kranky friends--on the left is Laurie, then JoAnn, Jerry, and Kay.
We gathered in my dining room last June to work on our HAND CRANK SEWING MACHINES.
We had so much fun, we decided to make it a regular thing--getting together to work on our machines. Laurie came up with the group name, KRANKY PEOPLE.
Laurie has a Singer with original hand crank--as I recall it has a manufacture date of 1894. It is a 3/4 size.
Needless to say, Laurie stayed the cleanest Kranky Person--dressed to the nines with gloves and apron. I think she's polishing a throat plate with some fine steel wool and metal polish on her 1894 Singer with original hand crank.
