Hi, I'm a newbie to this site, and was pointed here by a friend (who reads the threads but hasn't actually registered!).
I have just inherited a Singer treadle; it's been in garage for the last 30 years, but is in pretty good nick, with only surface rust and a broken belt. My daughter wants to restore it and use it, and I would like to get her some of the extra bits which I think probably came with it originally.
It is serial number ED039248, which I think makes it a 15K, made in 1941? We have looked for accessories and have found things on ebay, but they say Simanco. Do you know if they're compatible? There's one spare needle with it, but I suspect at least one more would useful, just in case. My daughter is 13 and has only hand-sewn so far. I'm guessing that she'd be better starting on a Singer like this, rather than some new electric which does everything including making the tea!
Thank you in advance for your help.
