    Valerie, I live in Amish country, too. My LQS sells a Janome head just like an e machine except it is for a treadle. Pfaff makes one, too. I think our Amish make their own cabinets. I was invited into a new Amish home that had a wonderful, large sewing room. The mother's older treadle was there, but so were 2 beautiful new parlor cabinets in a light finish. When she opened them for me, they held their daughters' wedding presents - new, modern machines in treadles.

    Hello,
    I was directed to this site as I searched for information for a vintage treadle machine. It's a Standard Treadle and I believe it to be a model no. 93-V. Anyone have any info? I most likely will use as a vintage piece, not for sewing at this time. It does have lots of attachments. etc in the drawers and it is in good condition.

    Valerie,

    Thank you. I do have my moments when my name is misspelled. BUT I have learned to 'go with the flow'. (Except when my ex's family gets it wrong).

It definitely makes a difference when someone notices or remembers. Silly as it might sound!

    Nancy,

    Goodness, I sure hope you didn't have trouble sleeping over my comments.
    I see your point and do agree. I agree nostalgic isn't probably the best term, but neither is reproduction. Maybe we can come up with something better.

    Reproduce, reproduction, means the process of making a copy of something . . . . made by reproducing an original, copy, duplicate . . . etc.

    Nostalgic mean a sentimental or wishful yearning for the happiness felt in a former time, place, or situation . . . a sentimental longing for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.

    I know all of us could probably use either term to describe those machines that are copies of the original Singers, but to me they will always be a reproduced copy. I can't think of them as nostalgic, even though that term does sound much nicer!

    Cathy you are just such a sweet person, you want the nice term used, but is it really the correct term?

    Hi KellyD2, Do you have a picture of the machine next to the Standard, it looks very interesting. What color is it? It looks Pink/Mauve?
    Thank you

    Anamaria,

    When my youngest was small I was usually referred to as "Andy's mom".

The one name that I always makes me stop and look is "mom" out of habit. When the 3 kids were small, I even thought my name was "Mom"

    KellyD2, that is a very pretty machine and a beautiful cabinet. What a nice find! Underbraiders are a real find, too, if there's one in the drawer.

    Hi Cathy, I have a brother, named Andy, so for me it was "Oh, you're Andy's sister"

    That explains why my brain always feels cluttered.

    Hi everyone, my daughter has just picked up an almost identical machine to this one but it is a model 'P' which we believe was made in 1911. It has a long bullet shuttle. Don't you just love the old advertising literature, one we read said that this was the only vibrator you need....
