I happened on a real deal last night on Craigslist.A treadle machine in really good shape for $125. I couldn't believe it. We drove to Galveston in the middle of the night to bring my new(old) gal home. I felt like a thief. but she seems to be in xcellant shape for a girl her age. I am naming her Tante Meta after my great aunt who made quilts by hand all her life. I was fortunate enough to recieve the last quilt she made. I will post a pic when I get her situated.
