My Great Grandmother’s Singer

I was left my Great Grandmother’s treadle sewing machine. When her husband died she needed a way to make a living so that she could take care of her children. My grandmother helped her earn the money to pay for this machine by making deliveries. My Great Grandmother took care of her family by taking in sewing and mending with this machine.

My Mom has the cabinet because she loves it. One day I will have the cabinet as well. I’m in no hurry to have it. I told Mom she could have just kept the machine with the cabinet for right now. She wanted me to go ahead and take the machine.

I decided to get it out of the box and check it out. I need to clean it up a bit. My intention is to get it all cleaned up and set it out for looks in my sewing room.
