Re: Enter the 2014 National Sewing Month Giveaway

I sew all of the time, so I haven't planned anything special. I've always got a backload of sewing to do. My grandchildren always keep me busy. I have two granddaughters and one grandson and the grandson is the one that ask for me to make something.

Before the digital age, I had every hard copy of your magazine. Now I have all of them as digital. If I win the subscription, I would hope it comes as digital, if not I'll read it and pass it on to someone that would like it.

Re: Identifying Vintage Sewing Machines

I have two vintage machines. One is a treadle that belonged to my great-grandmother. It is fully functional. I recently had it cleaned and gave the cabinet a good oiling. The machine sews like a dream. I have another Singer that belonged to my grandmother. It was originally a treadle; however my grandma bought a motor and installed it on the machine herself. It is the machine that I learned to sew with. My grandma gifted it to me in 1967, and I used it for 20 years. It is still functional.
