I'm in!! :)

When I get home I'll post some photos of the restoration project I just got...

It's a Wheeler and Wilson 9...like my Singer 9W, only it has some serious issues, having been through a fire!! :(

Well I guess I'll start if off. This is my newest acquisition I picked up this last week. I had posted it already, but it deserves to shine on this post.

It a a Singer Model 66-1 Treadle I got off Craigslist for free! :) :) :)

Works beautifully except for the bobbin winder I broke while cleaning her.

Isn't she a beauty. Haven't named her yet. :thumbup:

Jan I looked and can not find the winder for the 66. I have several cast pieces for the VS machines like the 27's but no 66's. :(

And your machine is a side clamp so it will not be a 66-1 I think it is a 66-2 the 66-1, 66-3 were back clamp and also the 66-1 did not have the boss to bolt a motor or a hand crank to.

But it is such a nice machine!!!!!

I think this is a great idea. I am like you there is nothing better than making a guilt with a vintage treadle. I even like the smell of the old machines!!! :lol:

A bowling buddy asked me if I knew of anyone who would pay $25 Cdn for this little sewing machine she had kept in her hall closet for a few years. ( She probably got it for free, as she volunteered at a Women In Need shop.) Told her I'd look at it and then take it to guild if I wasn't interested, here in our area I haven't seen any interest at all in these cute machines. (& I didn't know it was a featherweight when I bought it...hehehe). I've made one care quilt with it, it's so cute....I don't really have the time to play with it or space for it....and DH said....what do you want with that old thing (the case is intact & not smelly, but not many attachments)......but here she is anyway....and I think she's here to stay! After looking up her serial # I see she was "born"" in 1948

She's my age, exactly. Are you sure you wouldn't like to pass her on to me? :wink:
