singer treadle sewing machine
Bought a treadle operated singer sewing machine for $150.00. Don't know if that's a good deal or not but I had been wanting one for a long time and when it came up for sale on craigslist I just had to get it. The history of the machine is this. Linda,s granny got this machine in 1911. Linda watched her granny sew clothes on it until granny passed and linda,s momma got the machine. Lindas momma had it till she passed in 2006 then Linda got it. Linda doesn't see and needs the space this was taking up so she reluctantly sold it. She was glad to see it go to someone who appreciates fine machinery and can fix things. I told her when I restored it I'd send her a video of me sewing on it. My first project will be adding a zipper to the windshield curtains on my truck. My wife wants to try her quilting on it as well. I'm happy to have this and can't wait to get started cleaning it up."singer" treadle" "machine" "sewing" "antique"
