    Funny thing about the white machines they were the budget model lacking the bed decals and only had the Singer on the lamp.

    This is really interesting! I have a FW and a treadle. Take my FW to workshops and love it. Haven't sewn on the treadle yet.

    All I ever use is my treadles, if I had to use an e-machine I wouldn't know how to act. :lol: Not that I do not own one I do but I just prefer my treadles over anything else.

    To me the older machines are made a lot better and are easier to work on and to use.

    Must agree, love my treadle. It was my Grandmother's (they only machine she ever owned) and it runs like a top. Also have a Pfaff Creative Vision, along with the 3 featherweights and several other machines. Something about the treadle that is special.

    Here's a very nice resource for researching vintage machines, especially treadles. www.treadleon.net. There is a mailing list as well. I've learned a lot from this site. I have a White treadle that I restored and 2 Featherweights, one a 221 and the other a 222-the freearm model. I also have 2 301's, one a tan shortbed and the other a black longbed. While I have a top of the line Janome, I really like to piece on the Featherweights or the 301's. The black one is just new to me. I've sewn on the tan one for several years. Love those mechanical machines!
