Default New Willard or New Millard Treadle Sewing machine

I've read this is a great machine for quilting or heavy sewing. My mom passed from lung cancer 3/12/21. And for therapy I'm going to attempt to refurbish n use this New Willard or Millard treadle sewing machine to learn to quilt. I have acquired my great grandmother's Little Dutch girl quilt top she hand stitch sewed. So if anyone could tell me if the Singers 127 throat plate is interchangeable or I prefer a location to aquire an original to make this beauty a great New love! I've already got a new belt n it is so smooth and quiet in its mechanisms n movement. I've learn this is a machine I think was made by White. The decals need replaced since the previous owner obviously cleaned them off. I'd like to replace them if anyone can also tell me where to order them I'd be greatful. I'm trying to add the pictures of the machine!

Welcome. There is a section here on Quilting Board for Vintage and Antique sewing machines at https://www.quiltingboard.com/vintag...thusiasts-f22/ There are some members that only read that section. I know I did, but have changed my ways - LOL. I have a feeling that the throat plate from a Singer will not work on your machine. Back when these machines were made, they were really proprietary and while very similar there was enough difference that one would not work with another. There are a few machines that a few things are interchangeable with Singers.

As for decals, Keeler sales makes decals for sewing machines, but probably not for this machine. I have seen some blogs that they made their own decals and did a different design that looks nice.

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at https://www.quiltingboard.com/attach...020-01-17-.pdf
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of https://www.quiltingboard.com/main-f...d-t312607.html
