    Treadle Powered Piano & Fan plus Machine??

    Here is an interesting posting on Facebook today from Martha Pullen Company. I have never heard of a Treadle Powered Player Piano & Fan... anyone aware of this apparent 'FLOP' in the sewing world??

    Did you know... One gadget that never quite caught on was a musical sewing machine cover, patented in 1882, that held a player-piano roll & was run by treadle power. The treadle also activated a sewing machine fan patented in the 1870's and marketed for a dollar.

    Amazing!! I would love to see a picture of it! It's like the way I sew, I turn the radio on, and the ceiling fan, then I sew away, happy as a lark!
