    That was my question, too! At first I thought maybe it was a husband trying to be helpful and attaching wheels to his wife's sewing machine so it would be easier to take to classes and retreats. Lol.

    Probably for a creative outlet. People say the same thing about quilting.

    How cute! The machine was prob a parts junker & had seen all its better days. Glad someone put their imagination to use & gave it an afterlife - maybe as a lawn sprinkler???

    I'd say a very clever Granddad made this for a DGS. Notice the little seat. Ingenious.
