I need some hints on how to get my treadle going without going back and forth and breaking thread! Once, I get going I can sew pretty good, but I want to make a small quilt from start to finish on the treadle and right now I can only sew kind of hit and miss!
Billy should I be putting some kind of grease on the treadle so it goes easier when you are starting? Are some treadles easier than others? My treadle is really smooth once I get it going, but getting going is very hard! My belt is pretty loose, but it doen't slip, should it be tighter? Is there a trick to getting going?
