    Hi! It is still available. I was going to visit some quilt shops this next week but haven't done it yet. I'm sending you a PM.

Unfortunately, my good intentions to use it remain just intentions and I'd like to find someone who will appreciate it and use it the way it was meant to be used (not as a table).

    None of my siblings or cousins are interested in keeping it and I don't know of any local groups I could approach about it. I live in Minnesota and would love to find someone nearby who would give it a good home.

    Thank you for any suggestions
    Granny's machineI'd love to have that model! I sew canvas & I've been trying to find a machine like that to use!
    I hope whoever takes it appreciates that gem!
