I inherited this Singer treadle sewing machine from my grandparents. My mother says she remembers seeing her grandmother using it when she was a child. It has some condition issues, the belt is gone and the cabinet is flaking some. Inside, there was a fabulous button collection and a bunch of thread, still on the old wooden spools. There were about 6 spools of silk thread besides. :) I don't know anything about these machines and don't know what I should know to care for it or use it possibly. Any info would be much appreciated!
