A man inherits his grandmother’s antique sewing machine, and the mystery of a secret treasure hidden within it.

Genre: Mystery


“’Because, you see, contained within this sewing machine is my treasure,’” Selma read. “’Perhaps the most valuable treasure that I may share. And I leave it to you, for there is a mystery here to be solved. A mystery worthy of your curiosity. The treasure is locked away. If you wish to claim it, you must unlock it.’”

Selma stopped reading and looked at me, her eyes wide. “What is it? What’s the treasure?”

Episode Art Description: Digital drawing. View over an aged tabletop on which sits an old Singer Manufacturing Company brand sewing machine. A spool of thread is loaded, but not threaded through the machine. A motto custom-inscribed in a calligraphic font at the bottom edge of the machine reads: “Whosoever sews a single stitch ties together a world too easily torn apart.”
