     My granddad who was a schneider by trade carried his sewing machine on his back       from Lithuania to Hamburg  earning the money for his passage and his trip as he           walked from town to town.  
I went away to college in the 1960s.  Among my things was my mother's old Singer featherweight portable.  I made money for college with that machine.  Not many whole garments but I did do repairs and even a few refittings.  Glad to know I was carrying on a long tradition.  I made more that way than I would have as a student employee of the university.
