    Here is the downsized stash with the vintage machines---

    Some of you asked to see the outcome of my downsized stash so that I would have room for my vintage machines (and left over stash)-----I am not done organizing yet (will I ever be?) The last picture are of some I need to work on yet.....I do have 5 in cabinets that I did not show.....

    Very beautiful how you have them displayed. It's important to have a home that brings a smile every time you walk in. It is a lovely room.
    Got fabric?

    I saw your first thread and saw all the fabric and how it all magically disappeared (to me) and then saw all the empty shelves and read that you had quite a few sewing machines. OMG!!! I am so impressed with all the beautiful antique machines you have. And the last picture in your series of pictures...it's the most beautiful machine I've ever seen. All the wood carving on the cover is gorgeous. That must be your pride and joy!!
