    It will need a lot of work I fear....this was my Grandmother's, passed to my Mother, I sewed on this as a young girl. Many years ago my Father made this into an electric machine for my Mother, he tossed the wheels that made it a treadle....... Now I want to restore it to its original glory. This project will have to wait until I retire in a couple of years. Just wanted to share.

    It will be beautiful when restored. The best part is that you have a wonderful treasure that belonged to your grandmother. :wink:
