I found an antique treadle machine on craigslist that I may consider buying. I want to use the machine for quilting, not just have it for display. The brand is Vanadium - I've never heard of it and can't find info online. It comes with extra belts - accessories - and the manual. I plan to take fabric with me and try it out when I go look at it.
I know several of you piece and quilt with treadle machines --- can you FMQ? or do you mostly SID? Is there anything I should know about an antique machine before I buy this one? Thanks for your help!
