    after my Dad passed away last March my DB told me about a treddle sewing machine in Dad's workshop low and behold I hit the jackpot!! It's gona take a lot of tlc but will be worth every min spent getting her back in shape Her name in Jewel, in memory of her original owner who was my Mom's cousin. It's a Minnosota, made in the early 1900 for Sears has a chain drive to help pull the machine up as the lid is opened all parts are there, cabinet will need lots of work and even some old tools

    Jewel is beautiful.
    You have an awesome treadle there.
    The memories you have will make sewing on her all the more special.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    She's a beaut, even in her current state. I know you'll make her shine.
