Greetings from extreme southwest Alabama! I love to sew (though sewing clothing has been known to provoke foul language!), quilt, and make jewelry. Our four children are grown with children of their own which gives me some cute little people who need an occasional new dress or two. I'm the proud owner of my grandmother's treadle machine in a parlor cabinet which she bought on time - $10 a year payable at harvest time, and my 94 year old mother's toy sewing machine with the original box and instructions. A pink Atlas was purchased on a whim which started a fascination with old machines, though my knowledge of such is fairly limited. I do know, however, that the pink Atlas is one cool looking machine with it's pink box of accessories and pink and gray case! Love to hear from other quilters in my area!
