    Sorry, Hooch. One was my mother's and the other my great-aunt's. Both have immense sentimental value to this old softie dino. I learned to sew on my mother's machine and learned to love sewing watching my great-aunt perform miracles with the other. I also have a treadle machine (circa ~1865) that still works - my great-great-grandmother's - similar to the one below. None are for sell.


    Check out the local Goodwill and thrift shops. People often donate these when cleaning out the attic of an elderly relative who has gone on to a place where sewing is unnecessary.

    Is there no sewing in heaven? Or would you be talking about that OTHER place?

    I would asume that sewing is optional in both places -- sometimes it's heaven sew and other times it's .....
