    Thank you for the links, Miriam, and thanks Muv, for the videos. I will be watching and re-watching (slow learner, here) as I clean up my 'new' machines.

    Is there also a series on how to care for the cabinets and cases? I have two treadles that need the wood and irons worked on, and I want to do it myself, but am afraid the techniques may be too modern for these grand ladies.

    Glenn is the one you want for that - you can pm with him.

    If you find mitred corners tricky when binding a quilt, this method may be the answer for you. No fancy gadgets needed - just hairgrips and an unpicker on a new video by Muv

    Thanks Muv for making the videos. I have kept my Singer shuttle treadle oiled but I was afraid to clean it. I watched you cleaning your hand crank and applied many of the hints to give mine a good clean.

    Well done Muv. I am going to try your method for binding.

    Muv has sent another new video
    This one is about how to treadle a Serata Sewing Machine
    The instructions are most likely good for most treadles. Enjoy!
    Thanks Muv.

    Loved the video on binding. I do mine that way except use double fold. so now have another technique to try. Good idea on the hair pins. Will definitely do that.
