    Billy do you have one? I wonder if they are as colorful as the Singer Treadles?

    The ones I remember were way more colorful. I have only seen one for sale here in the US. It was very expenisve but it was in wonderful condition with all the decals.
    Now that is going to be my quest -- to find a Pfaff treadle I can afford!

    My SIL's grandmother has a Pfaff treadle with a coffin top. From what my DD tells me, it is in perfect condition. I hope that someday it will go to my DGD. She is 4 and already loves fabric and wants to learn to sew.

    A friend of mine has 2 Pfaff treadles and they are really neat. If you go to Marcelli's Blog you can see them.

    What do you all think of the Atlas sewing machine? I just won one on Ebay this morning. From the description, it seems to be in very good condition. It just needs a new belt. I love it because of the color.

    Can I join in here.
    I read a few pages back but you guys have an impressive thread going :D So I figured I will just jump right in

    Well I have always had my treadle and once I got it back up and running I have used it some.
    I am thinking of doing my husbands Anniversary quilt on it. At least the quilting part not sure if I will hand piece it or not.

    Here is my baby

    History my Dad bought it for my mother for their Anniversary in 1992. Dont know the history beyond that but it has now been in my family for 18 years.

    Lostin51 - Billy - What do you think about the machines in the links that I posed on pg 268 & 269?
    Are any of these a good purchase?

    The best sewing machine I ever owned was a portable White. All the parts were metal. No plastic insides. You could mend Blue Jeans on it and it never missed a beat. Then I wanted a new machine. I was good, but here 45 years later I still wish I had that White machine.

    Wow, do you have any idea when this machine was built?

    Very cool cabinet.

    Billy is that what this machine is -- a domestic?
