    can't find vintage photo

    I had a photo saved from online- it was a treadle sewing machine that had been hooked up to a baby's cradle, so that the sewer also rocked the baby.
    It must have been on needlebar, since I have looked and can't find it anywhere.

    does anyone have a photo of a treadle doing 'double duty'?

    I've never seen that photo. I hope you find it. My wife said she heard of the idea years ago.

    I would love to see that as well. Now that you have my curiosity peaked I know I will be perusing the internet looking for that photo.

    Here it is, toward the bottom of the page - it's actually doing triple duty (sews, rocks the cradle, and churns butter). http://lmpoole.blogspot.com/2010/04/...-machines.html
