Betzmachine-1

Betz White, crafter of the cutest felt cupcakes and coffee cup pincushions around, shares with us her personal sewing machine which happens to bear her name.

Betz says, “My mom bought me this used/rebuilt machine back in 1985 when I started college for Fashion Design. I have been using it ever since! It’s such a workhorse and powers through all of the felted sweaters I sew, which produce an incredible amount of lint. I keep a can of compressed air handy to blast out the fuzz balls from the bobbin case. Did you notice the brand? I’ve had the machine longer than my married name…perhaps it was some kind of foreshadowing? :)
