    Got a few pics of my New Treadle machine. She was seized when DH found her at a yard sale and he got her moving again. Now he is working diligently on restoring her cabinet. Seems the previous owner made a few "homemade" remedies for her and we are trying to bring it back. It came with a drawer full of attachments and feet.

    LOL no name yet and we have only been working on the cabinet so far. She does have her belt and no motor or wiring. It is getting cold here soon and want to finish the cabinet so we can move her into the house.

    Come to think of it maybe I will let DH name her, he certainly has named plenty of cars in his day hahaha

    Oh, how beautiful! It brings back memories of my Great Grandmother at her Singer treadle machine, quilting. I sewed my very first stitches on that machine, sitting on her lap while she worked the treadle, because my little legs didn't reach that far! Shows you how old I must have been at the time. But I have clear memories of it. Thank you for bringing back such lovely memories, and I wish you all the best with your awesome vintage machine. Please do keep her as a treadle! They were so wonderful! Today you could call them "green" machines!
