I recall having memories of playing with it as a child, when there was a sewing machine still attached to it. The thing I love most obviously was the foot pedal. As a kid, it was a magical thing to see a machine function entirely on its own. I’ve always had this fascination with seeing how things work and I love old things because I feel like a lot of functions of things are hidden nowadays. The way the sewing machine is made, you can really see how the mechanism works.

What is an heirloom to you?

Renyung: Something that has intangible value that you want to pass on because it tells a story of where you came from and in it, you feel will help the next generation understand themselves better.
