    I would love to make a quilt on it. I can remember mly grandmother letting me sit under the machine and pedal when she was tired. It was such a treat to be allowed to do that! :D

    Our home burned down when I was 14 so her's is gone, but this one belonged to my DH's grandmother, so it is special to him.

    I guess I had better take care of it! :lol: :lol:

    I have one very similar and the local Singer store carries the leather belt. You will have to cut it to size when you get one. I ove the old one so well that I have 3 that are all early 1900 :D
