When I went to AZ in '01 to take care of my moms final requests I saw her last machine. The one in the cabinet. I wanted to take it with me, but my aunt asked me if she could keep it. I said OK and left it there.
Since I've gotten into the sewing machines and quilting I've wanted that machine very badly. I've contacted my Aunt who said I can have it, but it's out in the old shed. My step son who lives on that property says it's under a tarp and in good shape. But neither of them will lift a finger to take it down, box it up and send it. I've even offered to pay all the shipping costs. Family ............... The only way I'll ever get mom's last machine back is to go get it myself and that is financially prohibitive. No gas money.
