    Was going home from a really bad day at work, started passing a yard sale, spied a machine so pulled in. By the time I got out of my car to see what it was another quilter had purchased it. It was a 1906 treadle singer, with the wooden cabinet, all the attachments were still there and the original manual. It was going to need alot of work, but it was only $20.

    Sorry you missed it, but glad a quilter bought it. At least it will be appreciated.

    You just have to tell yourself she was meant to have it. Your turn will come, and it will be all the sweeter for having been disappointed this time.
