    From antique to working modernity..


    Demetria is a house worker  in Panama who does sewing jobs as a side-line.  But she could not afford a new sewing machine.  So, someone gave her a very old Singer, early 20th century , which she adapted to manual.  And her side-line goes on.

    This is a terrific example of going from antique to modern--- in these difficult times.
