My 1917 Singer Treadle Machine -- A Request
I remember sewing on a machine like this when young, and I've always wanted to have one of my own. A guild member announced that she had an extra one in her home but no place to put it, so I offered to buy it. She wouldn't hear of that and said I could just have it. I was thrilled! A friend and I drove to her house an hour away that week to pick it up. It had to be loaded and brought home in sections, but we managed. It was in need of refinishing, and now that it's done, it sits in my dining room next to my hand-made quilt rack. It's missing a few things -- the treadle belt, the bobbin cover, and the wooden drawers. Does anyone know where I might find those? Thanks in advance. I have to say that even without those three things, I love it!
