    What a great surprise for you to come home to!!!! And how very thoughtful of you hubby to be so kind.

    I learned on a treadle and just loved it. Back (in those days) that was all we had for a machine but we thought we were so special to have any at all.

    Enjoy and thanks for sharing.

    Well she's a beauty, and Happy Birthday! Isn't it great that our significant others can always find just the perfect gift if they just focus on our quilting addiction!

    If you can't find a belt in your area you can pm me with the length you need and I can get one from the amish. We have an amish store close by. I'm pretty sure that I only paid $7.00 for the one that I got from them. Good luck. She sure is pretty. Lucky you.
