    Very neat chain stitch attachment. Guess it could only be done with a Rotary (?)

    Cathy if anyone can find out if there was a chain stitch attachment for any of the models I own, it would be you! I do have a couple Wilcox and Gibbs, and yes they make a beautiful chain stitch, but it would be fun if I could do that with one of my treadles - the ones I actually use! I don't use the Wilcox and Gibbs! The one my husband refurbished, from a broken down painted black treadle to a very nice original look is just so nice I don't want to mess it up. I do have an old electric Wilcox and Gibbs, with a hunking big motor that scares me, but it does have a beautiful stitch!Nancy

    Oh here is the Wilcox and Gibbs my DH refurbished! I will try and post the original too!

    Ok I have the before and after of the Wilcox and Gibbs! I know all you guys that have been on this shop have seen this before, but for the newer people I just love to show these pictures of a before and after treadle!

    Hi M'friends! It's been a rough couple of days at our house...I found out Monday morning that my sister passed away... I'm better now and dealing with it tho.

    Remember when I posted that on our way home from Idaho over New Year's that I found a sewing stool that I picked up for $5? It needed cleaned up and the seat needed new vinyl. That's what the spousal unit and I did today. We went to Hancock's and got the vinyl, when we got home he helped me to recover it. (He's SUCH a good man)

    Nancy, You said "Cathy if anyone can find out if there was a chain stitch attachment for any of the models I own, it would be you!"

    Boy, is that a high pedestal that you have just put on me. I am a collector and a mechanic, but not a great historian or researcher.

    I did just finished searching the needlebar site and the Historical Trade Literature in the Smithsonian Collection with no results.
    My personal knowledge of treadle and hand crank machines that convert by use of a "chain stitch spider" are some White Rotaries, some Domestic VS machines and some Standards (both Slims and Stouts). There are also some later (1970-80) Kenmores that convert and the infamous Singer Touch & Sew series. Maybe someone else can add to this info.

    Cathy

    Your chair turned out great! I'll bet you'll get a lot of use out of it.
