    .....in my own house!

    Several years ago a niece moved away from home and she had this machine she didn't want to take with her. So, since "I sew", she gave it to me. I gave it a quick look and moved it to the hallway thinking the whole time that I'd probably never use it for anything more than a table. After all, I already have to beautiful Janome's and a 15-91. After being here on the board for a while my curiosity got the best of me. I went out to the ranch the other day just to look that treadle over again and low and behold it's a Singer! It was too dark to be able to read the model number on it but I will get that the next time I go out there.

    Now I'm starting to wonder what that treadle out in the old garage is! I think you all have me hooked, LOL!!

    I do believe you've been bitten by the 'vintage singer bug' Don't worry, the bite is not fatal, but it can make you itch for more and more vintage singers! LOL

    There where?

    I think you need to have a moving crew locate them a place in your house. LOL
