This is my mum's typewriter. She was gifted it when she was 13...she'll be 57 this birthday. A number of weeks ago I remembered that she once had a typewriter and asked if she still had it. Bingo! We got it out a couple of weeks ago at family dinner and everyone had a go...even Tim and he wouldn't admit it but he had fun punching the keys. What was even better was that the ribbon still worked!
I pulled it out yesterday while I had some lovely ladies over for a craftanoon and typed some things for the 27 project. It was fun playing around with it, everyone had a go! :)
have you typed on a typewriter recently?
