Marley, so sorry for your loss but your Aunt knew that you would treasure and take good care of her old sewing machine so she wanted you to have it.
Marley so sorry to hear of your loss.
Aunt Sheila, knew that you will treasure this,
that is why she left it for you.
Enjoy all the happy Memories.
So sorry to hear about your Aunt but please know you will always have her near you.
Favourite Aunts tend to become Guardian Angels, so if you believe, you will 'know' when she is nearby and you will be able to share your feelings with her.
Hugs and blessings, Meganne
I am sorry for your loss and I am sure that she knows her loved machine will be in your hands and treasured. I wish you many years of stitching on it and I know you will have wonderful memories every time you sit down in front of it.
How wonderful for you to take over this very special treasure. I am sure your aunt knew that you would take care of it. Enjoy
You just thanked her in your own way by chatting with us cuties. She knew how much you would appreciate her treadle sewing machine so it was gifted to you from her heart. Good memories to remember on such a sad day.
Marley, your aunt & her memory will always be with you. You will think of her everytime you look at your legacy from her & I imagine in you she saw herself as a young girl with your love of sewing & embroidery./Lillian
Marley, your Aunt will be sitting right with you when you sew or clean her machine you just nead to feel her talking to you as she will. So when you feel her near tell her everything you want her to hear you say. I'm glad she had a good long life.
Do you have the cover (doily) your aunt put on her machine?
My heart goes out to you and your family for your loss. I know how you feel about the machine. My grandmother gave me hers as she was breaking up house keeping. I actually learned how to sew on it. I wish I had a nickle for every stitch or, even every garment I made on that baby. I still have it and use it to make buttonholes. I have the attachment for buttonholes and still have the receipt as to when it was purchased in 1942! Makes better buttonholes than any electric machine I have ever seen. Enjoy your wonderful memories of your aunt every time you pull out the machine, and, do use it. You will enjoy it and your memories will flood you each time you use it. Keep it safe for her and when it is your time, find someone who will do the same! Again, my condolences to you and your family!
I'm sorry to hear of your Aunt's passing. You have my sincere sympathy. When my husband's aunt had Alzehimers, her husband gave me her beautiful old black treadle Singer! It is one of my favorite peices of furniture.
I holeheartly agree with jrob! I am sorry for your loss!Your Aunt obviously loved you & realized you were the right person to get this machine & I'm sure she know's that you will treasure it & that's exactly why you are to receive it!
I'm so sorry for your loss, but I know your aunt already knew that you would love and cherish her machine, else she wouldn't have left it to you. I'm sure it was a treasure to her as it will be to you.;)
Marley, I am so sorry for your loss. I am sure you will thank your Aunt by the way you care for her treasured machine.
Marley, how nice of her to leave her sewing machine to you. I know you will treasure it and think of her each time you look at it. I'm sorry for your lose. I also lose a G-Aunt, will attend her funeral Thursday.
Thank you everyone for your lovely comments. Its been a tough few days, sorry about all the typos in my original post
What a wonderful gift of love. I am sure your Aunt will be with you always and hear you as you speak of her.
hugs & blessings
Thank You Moyed
My grandmother long gone for 15 years left me her old Singer Machine in a wooden carrying case. I don't use it now but I will always remember when I look at it that she was the one who opened my eyes to all types of needlework as a little girl and I learned to sew on that old black Singer. Cherish it because it will give you wonderful memories everytime you see it.
Thank you Shop, you sound a bit like me! I will cherish it so much alright
You made me cry. Aren't treasures wonderful. She'll know you love it everytime you use it or dust it.
Ive done a lot of crying myself today, thank you for your kind words
ah.... that is nice she left you something that meant alot to you both... don't worry she will be looking down on you while you cherish your machine.. Bring tears to my eyes now.. Wendi
Thank you Wendi for taking the time to write such kind words
Enjoy your new machine and think of your aunt and the fun she must have had using it. Quite a contrast to your embroidery machine
Yes a big contrast and you are correct, I bet she had loads of fun on it, thank you
