|Posing for a Photo|
It's older than me and on some days running better than me. It's not the most beautiful 15 I've ever seen -- it's got some scratches and there's a chip of enamel off the base, but these are minor imperfections on a machine that runs magnificently. I've never had a sewing machine that's given me so little grief as this one. (I almost don't even want to type that in case I jinx myself.) Clothes, quilts, crafts, home dec - it's done it all.
|The Normal Look|
I won't get into all the neat and lovely attachments for it but here is the old photo of the two boxes of attachments I found on the upper shelf of my mother's closet after she died. All of them fit a 15.
It's still uncanny that she had my name on that small box which had inside it the 15-91 manual and odds and ends for it. Why? Because she never owned a 15-91 and I didn't get mine till three months after she was gone. And I didn't find these boxes until afterwards. And my 15 was missing its manual.
What does a sewing machine get for its birthday? A thorough cleaning and oiling -but probably not the day off.
