    New Home treadle

    I just found this on Craigslist for $25.00. She's a beauty. I don't know anything about her yet but I'm excited to call New Home on Monday to find out her birth date.
    I recently found a Singer 66 on CL for $30.00 and I love sewing on her. I made a tote bag for a friend and it was alot of fun. It does take a little practice to get the hang of treadling but so worth it! The Redeye sews a perfect stitch. Its amazing how great these old machines still sew.

    Muv has some videos for cleaning up the machine. The cabinet looks totally FAB!!! HOW TO CLEAN UP and use a vintage sewing machine - videos by Muv and Fav
    You do not have to have the exact machine Muv has - just clean the parts the way she does. It works! A bit of Triflow goes a very long ways. Love the stuff - you can get it at a bicycle shop or sew-classic - I 'm sure there are other places to get it.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    I just recently bought a New Home treadle machine from Craigslist, too!! Your cabinet is much prettier than mine, though. That red eye is sure a beauty!! Do you have any other machines that you can show us?

    Beautiful cabinet and machine. I also see that a glass of wine is in your tool kit. Does it work well?

    Yes the wine is a great addition to any quilters tool kit. I have a 1 glass limit. Can't drink and drive a sewing machine straight.
    I will post a picture once the machine is all cleaned up. I need to take pics of all my others to post as well.
