The wonders of antiques

My husband inherited an antique Damascus sewing machine from his grandmother. I was happy and sad when I looked at it. The sewing machine just sits in one corner and no one is paying attention to it. On the other hand I'm happy thinking that I can make it run.

As I look into the belt it looks ratty and falling apart from old age and years that it hasn't been used. It needs a belt replacement but then again I was so excited to try it now to see if aside from the belt being useless if there's anything more that could be replaced.

So I took my jogging pants belt and tie it on both ends and replace it to the old sewing machine belt. I was so ecstatic when I made it work that way.The machine runs fine only a little bit of cleaning to do. I also oiled every nooks and crannies to condition the sewing machine.

My husband was laughing when he saw my jogging pants belt that I put into the sewing machine and me using his good old grandma's sewing machine. I said hey it works and I'm glad about it.

    My grandmother also have sewing machine like that. Indeed old-fashioned and out-dated, but a lot of memory in it.
