    Did you take that beautiful dog with you? Kathie

    Thank you. I just need to learn how to use them now. These machines are Miss Nellie Bell and Miss Neva Jane Jane. Nellie was the name of the woman's grandmother that I got the machine from and Miss Neva was my mother-in-law. Kathie
    lol I love the names! It will not take you long to learn to sew with them. These vintage machines are very forgiving and fun to sew with. I'm using my Davis today for straight stitch quilting. The more I use her the better the stitches are looking. Have fun treadling with them!

    I am so excited... I got my treadle working!!!

    I let the belt stretch out over night and this morning it was magic. LOL

    Now, I need to pick out a few more fabrics for my son's quilt and it will be started.

    Guess I should learn the whole bobbin thing, but I am so excited that she is up and running.

    I guess she needs an official name... I think she will be Helen, after my grandmother. Gram taught me to crochet a million years ago... remember the oreo cooking crochet magnets. Thanks Gram!!

    Congrats... treadling is so much fun! I love sewing on my 66 treadle. There's something so peaceful about treadling. And your sewing day isn't dependant on the electricity! I also love that the machine can go anywhere, not needing to be next to a wall with a plug-in! You can treadle in the center of a big room.

    Enjoy!

    I know you are excited! I just put my 1st treadle belt on last night. I just put it all back together after refinishing the cabinet and cleaning my machine...already shortened the belt twice...but I treadled today!!! Haven't filled a bobbin yet, just used the thread that was on it. It was exciting! I am anxious to start something on it...after some practice.

    BTW, I took my little Featherweight with me and everyone thought it was so cute and quiet! And that's from non-sewist and non quilters!
    I had my tan FW at a recent Quilts of Valor sew-in and one of the
    ladies asked me if it was a toy. I guess she'd never seen one before.
