    My Sewing came back home after 25 years!!

    Here is my sewing machine that i sewed on while I was a child... yes this one! It was my girl, story goes... I trade my sister's friend for a " better" one so I thought only to go buy my first machine after sewing with it. Well later in talking about the machine I found out that it was my Aunt's that was her mom's ( my great grandmother ) Once I found this out I wanted so bad to ask for it back, well many years went and i wondered if she even had it.. so I emailed her and asked if she still had it... and she said yes and asked me if I would like it because she was going to get rid of it.. Well I took her to lunch and I brought her back home !! isn't she pretty? She is a shuttle bobbin and still has all her attachments.. I think they are pansy flowers ... the cabinet needs to be revarnished but she is a keeper...

    How cool is that! Congrats on finding your baby after all these years

    Jackie, I learned on her! I am 47 and I made barbie clothes, rag dolls and I even made my clothes in high school on her, I made those long wool skirts and even a blazer! Carmella's mom made her beautiful outfits, so I jumped right into it.. I will make my note and will even put a picture of aunt dell and Gram Weigand " Minnie " in it...

    Definitely jot down the story and include some pictures. I'd like to see future generations sewing on that beauty. Or at the very least, enjoying the history of your machine.
