This Eldredge Two Spool
Rotary Sewing Machine
. Will Revolutionize Your Sewing
AND HERE ARE THE REASONS
No Bobbin to Wind! With the ordinary machine, it Is necessary to spend
at least one hour of a day's work in winding and changing bobbins. The
average bobbin holds less than 50 yards of thread. ' The average spool holds
00 yards. Think of the time you save and the labor!
Tou sew direct from two spools of thread. The lower spool fits In the
spool case, which answers the purpose of a shuttle, while the other is
placed on the spool pin, as usual.
Tou will not be annoyed by the lower thread running out unexpectedly In
the middle of a seam. The amount of thread on the lower spool is Indicat
ed by the condition of the upper spool.
The Automatic Tension is a genuine time-saver. It produces a perfect
stitch, without adjustment, on all classes of work. It saves the time neces
sary In changing tensions on ordinary, machines.
This Innovation in sewing; machlnes-this triumph of the Twentieth Cen
tury is uniquely simple. It is easy to understand and to operate, and
you will soon become proficient in its use. -
