Sewing AND embroidery! It's like you were a great English lord taking in a small French peasant.
Embroidery was once a thing that was highly prized by the rich and snooty. If you told one of them you had a small machine that could make it easy, they would have recoiled in shock! To say nothing of how they might have reacted to learning about this small Singer. Instead of a room of tiny-handed needlework damsels, they could have run a single machine! It would have been enough to distract them from noticing your time machine, certainly.
