When I first started sewing, my mother gave me her old Wizard Citation Sewing Machine. I didn’t know much about it, but a quick Google search gave me a few ideas about the origin. This 3K-8834 model originally comes in a cabinet with a knee pedal. Evidently, Brother manufactured this model but the early Citations were produced in Japan in the 1960’s.
The first few times I used it, I had a hard time figuring out how to thread the needle. The tension is a little different than new models and I couldn’t find much online about older Wizard models. I wanted to share a quick tutorial on how to do this for anyone who might pick one up.

For the longest time, I have had these large glass vases from the Dollar Tree in my craft storage bench. While I love the size and the weight of the vases for flowers, they definitely needed some kind of design upgrade before they can be displayed.
It’s nearly summer and I am definitely still loving tropical inspired home decor. Just the right touch can give your home a subtle summer upgrade without screaming, “someone must have had a luau party.”
With June right around the corner, it is time to start thinking about summer home decor.

I love decorating with pineapple accents because it can look chic and simple no matter what season it is.
