[Video description: Trailer for “A Sewing Machine From 1919.” 48 seconds. 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.” Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Mystery” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom. Tagline reads, “A man inherits his grandmother’s antique sewing machine, and the mystery of a secret treasure hidden within it.” The title card and tagline fade.  Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “She read the letter out loud. The first part spoke of how my gran hoped that she had chosen to leave me something that I would treasure. ‘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?’” Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades at the end as the image blurs, and story title appears at top.  Text box appears at center displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.”]
