    Funny, I got the rhythm but couldn't sew a straight line....for awhile.

    I wish I still had my mom's treadle. That is what I learned on. Lucky you.

    Well done! You'll be treadling in your sleep before long! I had to actually watch someone to learn the motion...then I was off and treadling. I really need to get my vintage treadle cleaned up and running....poor thing is tucked in it's top and I'm using it as a table for my late 40's Pinnock (which is electric).

    I love my treadles. I really think treadling qualifies as aerobic exercise. Well, doesn't it???

    It definitely counts as exercise - I have the sore muscles to prove it since I started treadling this week!

    Ladies I have been treadleing so It has become so natural that I don't even think about it anymore. I quess it is like riding a bike you never forget. I have not used an electric machine in years, although I have a 1967 New Home with cams and all.

    I'm building a Whacky Bag with my 1913 Singer 66-1. Start - stop -start - stop ...... that is a pain in the legs with a treadle. On long stretches I can get that thing cranking and doesn't seem like work. Now if I could just get both legs to work when I treadle I'd be thrilled.
