The sewing machine was one that was left inside the warehouse. (The warehouse was last a sewing factory.) My mother was a seamstress but I couldn't tell you the first thing about this tiny thing other than 1. it's cute and 2. it's made by Singer. We got rid of a lot of sewing machines but I couldn't part with this one... or about 5 other ones. I took this picture right after we finished the decorating of the ladies room. I'd show you some of those pics but the picture doesn't do it any justice - if I say so myself. You're going to have to come down and see for yourself!
