    I am wondering what my DG will think of my treadle! She wants to try everything, not sure how that will work. She'll be able to spin the hand wheel on the Minnesota with no problem, and I think she'll like the new green machine.

    I love reading blogspots!!! Interesting just seeing the individuality, interests, and projects from others.


    Glad to see that you are feeling better to start a blogspot.
    Still rest and eat healthy!

    Spotted in the wild today? A White made machine called a "Willamette D". At the Goodwill, $99.00.

    The machine was made for an Oregon company called Meier & Frank, and that's badged on the cabinet.

    It stayed there, cabinet was in rough shape...the pedal was broken.

    This is a look-alike pic, not mine. This was a good buy at $25 and less than 2miles from the house.
    I love the machine!!!!

    You know, I have a couple of spoked wheels. I'm pondering making it into a treadle and using it for bobbin work. Hmmm back to pondering.
