    Hi, I would love to be your sister. You can write to me anytime, I'd love it.

    I too am in search of a treadle sewing machine. I found a couple on ebay but the shipping was out of sight or too far to pick up. Don't know where you are but I would love to find one. My husband is a woodworker so he could help in that area. And I know a wonderful service person to help with keeping it working well.

    You take care and have a blessed week-end. Today is football day at our house. Right now Oklahoma is playing Texas (go Sooners) and tonight Oklahoma State plays. So we are pretty well down for the day. I am making a a grandmother flower garden and doing it completely by hand. This is my first attempt at a totally handmade quilt but I am loveing it. It is almost addictive to me. Just want to keep going so I can see how it will look. May put others on my list.

    Love and prayers, Janet in OK [img][/img]

    Mine is a 1908 model made in NJ.

    Knot Sew, Amma, Sula Bug, and Mrs. I, I would like to be a sister to all of you. I grew up with 3 brothers, and always wanted a sister, esecially one that quilts. How about i, can we all be sisters? :) Janis

    knot sew;
    I love the picture of the machine to the side of your post. I have my moms and it looks just like this one. I learned how to sew on this machine. I have spoken with a gentleman who is coming to my home after the holidays to get it up and running for me. Will be nice to see if I can still sew on this machine. Not sure if it runs backwards. I actually do not remember it ever going backwards. I think we just tied off the threads.

    :thumbup: Yes, a treadle will go backwards. Takes some thinking on my part. Whatever way you work the treadle to make it go forward. Stop and reverse the way you push the treadle. I figured this out years ago.
    Hope this helps.

    Sure we can all be sisters. I only have one and she lives several miles from me. We email daily but don't see each other much. I would love to have more sisters.

    I need birthdays (and home addresses if you don't mind). I am getting my studio in shape since our moving into this house in March. My studio took a back seat for many reasons. I can hardly wait to unpack all my fabric. It will be like seeing old friends again.

    Love and prayers,
    Mrs. I (Janet)
