    I purchased this treadle sight un seen last summer. It has been in a friends storage shed and finally nagged the DH to bring it home. I just found out what it was I spend $40.00 on. I still have to have it cleaned and checked but isn't it fun!

    She's beautiful!! I just love the decals on the old machines! Lucky you!!! I wish I had room for a treadle. At one time I had a treadle, but my ex got it. Not that he wanted it for any sentimental reasons -- he just wanted it because he knew I would want to keep it for myself. :roll: It was a White and certainly NOT as beautiful as your Singer, but I loved it, though. It meant the world to me, but such is the way life goes sometimes. :|
