Singer 6233 took its last stitch on August 15, 2013 and was pronounced “not worth fixing” on August 22, 2013. This well-loved machine was a gift on October 3, 1985 and has had a very useful life.
Among its accomplishments are the creation of a student teaching wardrobe, various curtains and appliance covers and many mending jobs. It also happily made baby clothes and matching dresses for young girls. These same girls later learned to sew on this Singer.
This machine lovingly created several family Christmas outfits. Most recently, it made tote bags out of chicken feed sacks.
Singer 6233 travelled extensively starting out in Houston, moving to Denton, Canton, Mexico City and ending up in Bryan, Texas.
The store was just going to throw it in the dumpster (after I left, of course) so I brought it home for a proper burial.
It will be hard to replace my Singer 6322. They just don’t make them like that anymore. The sales lady promised to work with me to learn a new machine. I am skeptical.
For now, I will let sewing rest and mourn my loss.
