    That is indeed a beautiful machine. It's a good thing I don't see machines like this in real life, because I already have too many, but I wouldn't be able to resist something like this. :)

    I read on here somewhere yesteready, someone saying that they wondered why they don't make sewing machines like this any more, you know, with all the lasting detail. I don't know why they ever quit doing it like that either. Might have to do with production. But since these were made for people who had a creative side,we would really appreciate the beauty. Quilters are very detailed in the craft that we do.
    I have a book that tells stories about the pioneers and how they would travel even in the wagon trains with their treadles loaded onto the wagon. These were a must back then because it was how they kept the family going in clothes and quilts. So their treadles were treasured Items. I laughed thinking about how most men now days would bulk at having to load and make room for that. But back then I guess he figured if he didn't want to be out planting buck naked he might just want to go along with it.roflol

    Well Rosie arrived today and she is every bit as gorgeous. Now I am going to oil it up...thread it up and see how she does. All of her parts seem to be moving like they should be though. lol

    That is a really great looking Jones! I am still trying to recover from this Bronchitis I have so I have missed a lot here lately. I am amazed at how nice the bed decals are on the machine, you can tell it was not used a lot and was well cared for.

    A very nice score indeed!
