Default Great aunt's wards urr188

Using it tonight and feeling very connected to her. So glad I kept it, even tho I have a great new Viking 850.

I love using my mom's Singer 15-90. I just made two rag quilts for my nephews for Christmas on it, it just seemed like I needed to do those quilts on it. It makes me feel connected too.

Here's a picture of Aunt Esther's machine. I don't know how old it is, but believe it was fitted into a newer cabinet. It purrs along like one of my cats.

What a pretty machine. Very sleek and elegant. I love the 15 copies. They sew as well or better than the original Singer machines.
