    My MIL passed away 4 yrs ago and I was given her sewing desk. It was put in our bedroom and was used as a table next to my rocking chair. My DGD is coming next week and we love to sew together. She needs her own desk to sew at so I figured I would move it to my sewing room. I couldn't figured out why it was so heavy. Look what I found inside. I had this and didn't know. There are so many attachments in the drawer too. I have wanted one but couldn't justify the expense. So now I need to get her cleaned up and see if she works. I still need a desk for my DGD.

    I saw one just like yours at a thrift shop last week they wanted $15.00 for it. I went today and it was still there and marked down to $10.00. I'm thinking it didn't work because sewing machines don't last more than a day in thrift shops around here.
    You are so lucky to have her. She is perty!!

    Great machine. 15-91's were known as the Farmer's Wife's Special. It is a heavy (I'm sure you noticed that when you tried to move it) powerful, fast too, straight stitch machine. It handles multiple layers and denim and canvas and was probably used to mend countless piles of farm clothes. Many quilters like them because they have a larger harp.
