    I'm looking for information

    about a Richmond treadle sewing machine. It was my husbands Grandmothers and it's still in good working condition. I've never heard of a Richmond. All I know is that it might have been made by The National Sewing Machine Company, so any info would be appreciated. Thanks bunches.

    Above is a link for a wonderful restoration of a Richmond. You are correct, it was made by the National Sewing Machine Co.

    The tension disks on the Richmond are fascinating.
    If you wouldn't write it and sign it, don't say it.
