    Here is the Singer Treadle I just purchased. The pictures are all before pictures. I have not yet cleaned up the machine. I believe I will enjoy her. She is a G series so her name will be GiGi. It may take me a while to get her cleaned up but I will post after pictures.

    attachments that came with her

    the only thing I did not like about her. I am sure this is not original - while a nice touch I suppose, but would have preferred wooden top

    Oh wow you have done well. I really need to clean my treadle and start using it. I am just leery about having to move my feet and hands at the same time :)

    WOW!! It is beautiful. The cabinet looks in great shape and the machine head itself is gorgeous. That decal style is known as a Red Eye. And look at all the attachments you got with her! Good job.

    What a nice Red Eye you have there and with all the back clamp attachments(these are very rare attachments). I have two and you will love sewing with them. This is my favorite machine to piece quilts. Did I say this was my favorite sewing machine? glenn

    Fabulous! Now all you have to do is make an antique reproduction quilt to cover the top! It will hide the misfortunate "improvement".
    peace :D

    I have her twin sister, even the same cabinet. I did get a maintenance manual with mine, if you would like me to copy it and send to you.

    Looks like it doesn't need too much cleaning up. I'll bet a dollar there was a big ole water mark from a potted plant under that decoration on the top. Most all my treadle machines have one.

    That's interesting. I never thought of that.
