    I have this sewing machine that had LaRaine on it but when I started cleaning it there was a Honeymoon decal underneath. The shuttle has Davis on it. Anyone seen or heard of one like it?

    Monica, that is so cool! Is that cord hard wired in or can you unplug it? It looks hard wired.

    Isn't it fun to do decorative stitches on the treadle!

    Yeah, I know, but I think I am far enough inland that I don't have to worry too much! Nancy

    Nancy, if you believe what is written you need to worry as I read that the Sierra Mountains will be the new coast line. lol Kathie

Just dive in and go for it. I used the same method for patching knees, open inseam so you have lots of room then close it back up when done. Hope this helps.
    I've copied and pasted your response and emailed it to myself. I'm going to see about doing this this weekend. And then, to double check, when I close the inseam, I'm closing it inside out to make sure the seam is on the the inside? Also, the inseam is the seam on the inner part of the leg right?

    Wouldn't our great-grandmothers be proud to own a machine that made all the zig zag stitches? I can hear them now talking about owning one.
    Thanks. I know my one grandmother, not even a great grandma, would be so surprised that an electric machine would work in a treadle. She wasn't into sewing, but she did love to quilt. She would be awed at the use of a zig-zag machine being used for quilting decorative stitches onto the quilt.

    Yes, the wires connect. I saw photos of other 328k machines in treadles, and wondered why they had the electric too. Now I understand why they left it on, no point in removing it.

    Yes, when you are finished doing the flat seam, turn the leg inside out so you can put right sides of fabric facing then sew your seam. I like to either zz the edges or at least sew another seam close to the edge to help prevent raveling.
