Description : Black metal sewing machine with some silver-coloured pieces. A silver-coloured hand wheel is located on the right hand side of the machine. The machine has "Singer" printed on it in gold-coloured lettering, and in several places gold-coloured floral patterns decorate the machine. The machine sits on, and folds away into, a wooden table. A hinged wooden panel on the left side of the table covers the machine when it is folded away, and opens out to provide a larger work surface when the machine is in use. Four small drawers are located under the table, two on each side. Each drawer has a small, round, wooden knob. Iron legs hold up the table, and hold the iron foot treadle. The legs rest on small wheels. The foot treadle consists of a grid of straight, simple lines with the word "Singer" printed in the centre.
Commentaires : A Moravian mission was established in Makkovik in 1896. The Jannasch family, missionaries who helped establish the Makkovik mission, started a boarding school soon after. This boarding school was for the children of the many families that did not live in communities, but were spread out along the coast to be nearer to fishing, hunting, and trapping resources. Children attended the school from October to May or June each year. A more extensive boarding school was built in 1914. It was partially funded by the fees of 50 cents per month per child, and partially by charity groups in England.
Fonctions : This sewing machine was used by the house mother at the boarding school in Makkovik to make clothes for the students. It could be powered by the foot treadle for rapid sewing, or by use of the hand wheel for finer control. The machine can be folded away into the table when not in use, and neatly covered by the hinged top of the table. This hinged top folds out to provide a larger work surface when the machine is in use.
