Default What I brought home

I have been looking for a treadle for many years, but obviously not too hard or I would have probably found one by now 😄! After reading the thread ď I wish I had a extra 75.00Ē and seeing the machine I fell in love with the style of the treadle. I decided to have a look on my local Craigslist and I guess what I found, it was meant to be! While this machine is not nearly as nice as the other one, Iím happy with it. Picked it up this morning and while Iím not sure if the price was too high or not, I felt it was fair given the condition.
I learned to sew on treadle and Iím looking forward to learning again, just need to get it to my sewing room and then I can get playing on it.

Congratulations! That's a real beauty & the cabinet looks in great shape too. Have fun re-learning how to use your new machine.

Very Nice!! From w hat I can see via the pictures it has a lovely cabinet. You will have years of fun with this machine once you get it all checked out and ready to sew. The machine itself look to be clean and well taken care of. Congratulations. I want to see the first quilt you make with it!!

I love small parlor cabinets. I don't think I have seen one in that good a shape. Congrats. Treadle On!
