My 1 st "New" Treadle

Good Evening All

I'm enjoying the evening knitting and watching a movie with a friend.

I'm posting this using my iPad, sorry if the pics are not very good.

This is what I'm knitting tonight.  I'm liking it.

Here is my "new" treadle machine and it works too!!

I found it in my Mom's garage after she passed away.  I wasn't sure if it was one of my grandmothers'.  But my SIL said my Mom purchased 3 old machines.  I had the base refurbished my antique restorers and the machine serviced by a singer dealership.  
Tonight we set it up and it was so smooth.  I can't wait to try it on some quilting fabric.  

Hope you are having a great evening.

  1. Very interesting knitting. Can't wait to see how it turns out. The treadle is gorgeous. I've been looking at some, I'm amazed by them, but I don't think I have room for one here. Enjoy it.

    1. I wasn't sure where I would be putting it either as I have no space in my quilting area. But it looks great in my living room. Now to keep clutter off of it. ;)

  2. Beautiful machine Vicky. My mom had one just like it. The restoration work was amazing, the cabinet looks almost brand new.

  3. Thanks Martha. I didn't even think of taking before and after pictures until I was replying to the comments today. It looks amazingly better. Inside some of the drawers still look awful, so I'll have to get in there and do some cleaning. But I'm really happy with the cabinet and machine.
