    Hello from England

    Hi, I would just like to say hello everyone.

    I live in the UK and have just saved an old Jones treadle sewing machine form the dump! I am in the process of cleaning it up, and it still works but dont know how it sews yet as i havent set it up and I need a new belt.

    I think it was made in 1894-5 (in Manchester in the UK.) as the serial number is quite low, 17836 and its a "medium CS" model. I am doing some research to try to find out the age of the machine.

    Hello from New York State!
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Hi and welcome from Wisconsin. I do hope your rescued sewing machine works for you. If it stitches decent that would be such a great feeling.

    Good for you rescuing that old machine. Hope you're rewarded with a reliable, straight stitch.

    Welcome from Western Washington. Glad to see another Vintage Sewing Machine collector. Yes, collector because you will find just one is not enough. Sort of like chocolates!
