I tried reviving the poor thing by oiling it and trying to dust it out.
Then I took more drastic measures.
I tried reviving the poor pedal by trying to talk it into staying alive
I tried CPR
and then I even tried the Heimlich on it
but, even with all of my life saving techniques
......the pedal just couldn't be revived.
So my dear friend and constant companion
I will always remember the joy you gave me in sewing
the many aprons, hot pads, tote bags, pillows, blankets
and the occasional mending of clothes.
I will remember the happy times we had being creative together.
Under any other conditions I would be at a total loss
bought this old sewing machine last year at a garage sale for $20.00
