    Not to blow everyones fun, but do you have any pets? Cats are curious creatures, and I had a cat that loved to swing on the porch swing. He could get it to swing all by himself and keep it swinging by bobbing his head. So there could be another reason.
    Of course, I would still leave blocks out for the owner to work on for me as I think she could be visiting her machine.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    I may be the owners of these White's just need to know everything is going to be alright with their machines. I just took possesion of one a few weeks ago. Here's my story _http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage-antique-machine-enthusiasts-f22/meet-miss-sophie-1913-white-fr-treadle-t179138.html

    One never really knows for sure..

    This morning my roommate asked me if I was sewing late last night around 11:45 pm. No way. I go to bed at 9. She swears she heard the machine running. She got up out of bed to see what I was doing and the livingroom was dark and the machine was still.

    Do you think I brought the original owner home with me, too? If I leave my quilting pieces on the machine, do you think she'll finish them for me? :-)
    My best is the least I can do.

    Where in Arizona are you?In 1955 my daddy traded my grandmothers treadle machine in for a new zigzag machine.I was a little girl but remembered learning to sew on the treadle.Wouldn't that be a hoot?
