In Memory of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire 100 years ago

It was 100 years ago a terrible fire took the lives of so many sewers. So sad. I spotted this wonderful old sewing machine that a charming repair guy had refurbished and gave a new caring case to at the swap meet. Ahhh you can just imagine all the wonderful things this machine has stitched and all the possibilities it still holds.

And speaking of possibilities check out what my fellow crafty bloggers have to inspire your futeure creativity:
