I don't have a treadle yet. I love to FMQ on my modern bernina, but would like to do some quilting on a treadle like I did as a child. That was all straight line quilting(all granny would let me do), but I would like to also FMQ on a treadle.
With that in mind, I have been exploring the idea of which treadle machine is right for me. I do have 3 singer 66 heads, but (a)they have rear mounted feet and (b) don't drop feed dogs
I do have several japanese clones that would work, like my straight stitch pink Atlas. Or, I could use this as an excuse to get a new addition to my collection.
any suggestions? I don't want a 27 or 127, although a 99 would be ok if I could figure out a way to drop the dogs. When I have tried to cover feed dogs with the buttonhole cover, I haven't had great success for some reason.
