    I had a guy here yesterday to give me an estimate for cleaning out the basement of the office- there's carpet and some sort of underlayment to be removed- it's damp.

    Anyway- he sees my machines and says- you collect these things? I say yes- he says he just sent 2 treadles to the crusher last week. I almost had heart failure! But, he said he will give me every sewing machine he finds. He does clean out work for foreclosures and finds all kinds of stuff. I think that's a job I want.

    Maybe I better learn sewing machine repair.

    If it is a feather weight Singer cabinet #68, it could be worth lots of money.
    I think it would be O.K. to rewire it because it could be damages to use otherwise. I have seen Featherweight sell for $350 if the gold is good shape and lots of people just want them to sew with and will still give a lot of money for one.

    my heart breaks :cry: :cry: :cry: I sold my old treadle 4 yrs ago when we moved,my hubby was tired of moving it from here to there, no place for it at the home we moved into. It had all of it orginal pieces and parts, in very good condition, except I was the only one who seen beauty in it, bought it for $10.oo 15 yrs ago, I miss it dearly. I sold most of my antiques then, and what I have left, I am holding onto with dear life! :cry: Hold on to your machines, my fellow quilters!

    If you are interested in a treadle go to treadleon website. Check out Craigslist et.I have many treadles and piece almost everything on my Singer treadle. I have a 15-88 that I love and another Singer that is in almost perfect condition that I also use. I stick with Singers since I can buy bobbins for them anywhere even Wal-Mart

    Chances are that your grandmothers machine will still work with a little machine oil. I have one that was left out in the rain for who knows how many years with stuff piled on top of it that I can sew on LOL
