My husband's son bought him this poster with the family name (Fear) and crest with a description of the origin of the name. The design is applique and embroidery.

My previous post included pics - please don't look at the house - just realized that the bathroom was in some of the pics - this is our basement ... and the board behind the machine is the top - once the machine goes down into the cabinet, the entire top is covered by that one piece - it is in the worst condition - not sure how to fix - will be learning
I bought this at a yard sale this week - $40 - I fell in love with the machine and cabinet and just had to have it ... it runs, a little noisy, but a beautiful stitch.
