    new royal treadle?

    Has anyone heard of a New Royal Treadle machine? If so can you tell me anything about it. I was looking for a cabinet for a clone 15 I bought and came across a beautiful cabinet. I called the lady and she said the machine head is in perfect condition and still in the cabinet. I could have both for $30. Of course I bought it but don't know anything about it. I would post pictures but the machine is at my mom's house untill Christmas. I will post pictures than. Thank you.

    Would need more information, but a preliminary search indicates that New Royal was made by Free...

    Should take a 20x1 needle. Can't wait to see pics!

    Buy it!

    For $30, buy them. I have 30 machines that I have refurbished and loved. You can always sell some to make room for a new one. Buy it and enjoy the relationship. Even for a little while.

    It was for sale in the town that my mom lives(2 hours from me). She picked it up for me and said it was gorgous! She texted me a picture. I can't wait to get it. It is definitly bigger than my 66 redeye. It came with the original manual, accessories, bobbins, etc.. And for only $30. Now if my husband would only understand!

    What a good idea! T-shirts for all of us vintage enthusiasts!

    Congratulations on the New Royal, Krista! Would love to see pics!

    Love it! I think I will try it. I just came home with two bags full of fabric. He asked what I was going to do with the ugly fabric. Men should just stay in the garage with their thousands of tools. Gotta love them though. I did laugh a few times though.
