Antique Treadle Powered Singer Sewing Machine
I recall people asking me where I had bought it. I remember when I was about seven I cut out a dog pattern and began sewing it. I had watched my mom sew. When I was done sewing the first piece I took it out to my mom and asked how to get the pattern piece off! I had thought I had to follow along the stitching line on the pattern — otherwise how would I know where to sew?
I sewed with my grandmother when I was tiny, but the first thing I can remember sewing is a scrunchie.
First bigger project was either a shirt or a plastic bag holder- that my mom still uses! As a little girl 3 or so , I had a toy sewing machine that worked. Learned how to mend clothes. I remember making doll clothes for Barbie. Home Ec class when I was I made a sleeveless cotton blouse, and my grandmother made a yellow corduroy skirt for me so I could wear it to school. I started by making clothes for my dolls.

My first project was burpcloths! I got my first sewing machine for my 14th birthday and I pieced a Dutch doll quilt top with my grandmothers help.

Am just finishing a wedding quilt for my grand daughter and will be onto the next project. What ever goodies there are in that Bernina backpack would sure be put to good use.
