I am cleaning up my sewing room. My husband is letting me put his grandmothers sewing machine on a shelf in my room. I am happy to have it as art in my room. I don't know if it works but I don't think so until I replace belts. My mother in law is brining me her sewing machine that she had when she was a kid which works and is still in box so I could place it next to hher moms. I can't wait to put hers up there. Here is grandmas machine. Wish we still had the table it sat in. Happy to have it either way.
