Sewing on the Battleship North Carolina

 Last week I took two of my boys on a trip to the North Carolina coast.  One of the things we did was visit Battleship North Carolina.  We enjoy visiting historic sites while traveling.  

 I'm always looking for signs of sewing on our trips.  Here's an old Singer sewing machine that was on display in the ship's tailor shop.  Do you see the cot hanging to the left of the machine?  The sailors that worked the tailor shop had to sleep there, too.

 In the tailor shop, they did repairs and alterations to the sailor's uniforms.  According to the above, many of the sailors wanted "bell bottom blues made for liberty" to wear to impress the girls when they were in port.

 I spied this Singer shoe sewing machine inside the cobbler's shop.

 Here's a large press for wrinkle free clothing.  It's interesting to see how sewing machines were used in the past.

Here's a view of the Atlantic from North Topsail Beach, North Carolina.
