I still love the sound of her sewing machine. It is also the one I use to make all my projects and clothes with. It is solid metal and I don't want to jinx it, but it has never been in the shop for repairs. My dad bought the machine for my mom when she was pregnant with me so it is old as dirt! But I would not trade it in for any of the new fancy computer generated machines that are available now.
This is my serger...love this almost as much as my regular machine, this is the machine that trims the fabric and over stitches or finishes off the edge (like what you see on store bought clothing). I use both of these machines when ever I sew.
I went through my wedding album and had a hard time finding a photo where you would be able to see the details of my dress. This was taken just about 25 years ago and I have been working really hard to get back to the weight I was at this time...only 3 more pounds to go!
