    No quilts passed down in my family, but I do have some precious family items like my grandmother's first doll and my great grandmother's rocking chair.

    My great uncle was a recluse and in possession of numerous family treasures, when his daughter (my cousin) passed away I worked up the nerve to ask him for anything he might want to part with and I'm so glad I did. He gave me a few treasures but when he passed a year later, he left behind an invalid will and all his stuff was seized and auctioned off by the state. My DH and I went to the auction but we didn't have much money and nearly everything went for way more money than we could possibly afford.

    Your treasures are wonderful and you can tell by the condition of the cabinet how loved and well taken care of it was.

    Lucky you !!! I'm sure you will cherish them always. I don't have any machine sewing history on my mother's side, but I do have a couple of pieces of hand embroidery done by my grandmother. Her cross stitch hand work is immaculate. It looks almost as good on the front as on the back. I was lucky enough to receive my mother-in-laws treadle singer machine and cabinet. My husband's grandmother's treadle machine went to another family member (who never sewed in her life, and who got rid of it not long after) I would have loved to have had that one, the grandmother had a long sewing history of sewing for some of the elite in the province during the 40s and 50s. She sewed wedding gowns out of silk parachutes during the war for GI's and their brides. She sewed dresses for dignitaries to meet the Queen, Lot of history there, but, gone, too late now. Not that I had any say in it. I was however, lucky enough to get from my parents estate, an old hand crank singer, complete with the curved wood carring case, no family history to that machine, other than that they saved it for 40 years. You are very blessed and lucky to have what you received. Cherish it for ever !!! Auntie B

    I do them on my machine but I customize them first.
