    What a great find. I learned to sew on a treadle machine.

    The story behind this lovely machine is. I went to visit my Aunt in New York. She is 81 years old. I took her with me on a road trip to a quilt shop that a fellow quilter told me about on the cat room.

    Upon returning back to her house, I oiled and got the machine running smoothly.

    I went out to check on my husband who was brush hogging for our uncle, and came back into the house and she was cleaning out the cabinet. I asked her what she was doing and she said "this is going home with you".

    She has two daughters that don't sew, so I now have another machine. This makes 4 singers. I have one more to come my way, which is still at my mother's house.

    I remember my paternal grandmother sewing on a machine like this. I was fascinated at how the treadle going could pull the needle & thread through to sew the fabrics. She made clothes, quilts, and anything imaginable on her Singer.

    Flashback: I was in a First Grade Play, as a Butterfly. She made me a yellow Butterfly costume with attachable Wings. She made the upper bodice unit too small & I got stuck when she tried to take it off over my head. I started panicking & felt suffocated. I was maybe 6 yo then & to this day cannot stand to have anything tight around my throat & neck area.

    I'm afraid I'm turning green :) (with envy).
