Hi, I came across this board while searching for info on the Davis VF Treadle I bought. I was looking for a site to give me a clue as to how old my machine is. I don't plan on selling it so in that regard I don't have to have the age, but I want to know for my own benefit. I have been sewing all my life and quilting for quite a few now. I recently bought my Davis because I remember sewing on a treadle when I was young and loving it. As soon as I learn how to thread it and take care of it I can start sewing a new quilt.
