    When I called a woman on Craigslist about a sewing machine she was getting rid of, she told me that someone was going to be picking it up in the afternoon. She also mentioned she had a treadle model she was also getting rid of but didn't list it.

    I left my phone number with her and told her I would take the treadle the next morning. She called me later and told me the man didn't show up and did I want both. I said "Of course, I will see you first thing in the morning!"

    Well here they are: A beautiful Singer Model 66-1 Treadle that works like a dream until I cleaned it today and broke the bobbin winder.

    The other is a Singer Model 99 in a case with a knee pedal.

    And the best part is they were FREE!! :thumbup: :) :thumbup:

    Actually Billy knew about it before I got them. I had e-mailed him asking if I was nuts.

    He is so knowledgeable about this stuff.

    He is trying to get me the part I broke, for payment I just willed the treadle to him. :thumbup:

    I love them both but especially the treadle. Spent hours cleaing her up yesterday. At first I though I had messed up the tension, but all is fine. She has a perfect stitch.

    Now I am looking for attachments to make her complete. I have to book it came with, in rough shape.
