I have had this old Singer treadle machine sitting around for years. I have a super nice new reg machine so really thought this would just be there to keep and pass on. Today I decided to open it up and dust and clean a little. It is so pretty so now I am going to leave it open and on display. But the best part is while hubby was looking for a belt to order we discovered it was made by Singer in Nov 1910...............never thought it was that old. So new belt and needles on the way thanks to the Singer website------and no postage!
