The day has come! I’m the proud owner of my grandmother’s sewing machine.
Not many people have experienced the excitement i am currently feeling. I am now the (very) proud owner of my grandmothers old industrial sewing machine. She taught me how to use it very very briefly many years ago when i was only a teenager. Being the middle child of her 20 grand and great-grand children, I always prayed the machine would go to me. I am the only one of all of us whom she taught to use it. I am grateful to still have her in my life. We are Portuguese and sewing and crocheting is her specialty where she worked in a factory for over 30 years when coming to the US. That being said, i need to brush up on my very very basic skills (if any skill at all haha). The machine is a Juki DDL-555. If anyone knows where i can go to learn the machine more itd be greatly appreciated. I plan on having my grandmother teach me some more but her being elderly, and COVID times on top it, its not very easy for her. Any input would be lovely.
