Tips and ideas on how to make the most of what we have....or what others have thrown away.
I tried again for an outside shot of the quilt (it's WILD out there today), with the following result:
Mrs. Waterboy, your quilt is super pretty!
I learned to sew on a Minnesota treadle that had been my great-grandmother's. Mom still has it although it hasn't been used in 50+ years due to not being able to find needles to fit. I used a Singer treadle on loan from a cousin for many years. I now have a National treadle that does not work properly although I think a repair person could adjust/fix it if I had the $'s to have it done. I'm debating between repairing the old machine and replacing it with a new Janome treadle head. Although I am keeping my eyes open hoping to find a Singer round bobbin treadle head which would be my first choice.
One thing I learned early on with treadle machines is not to make a mistake sewing because the stitches are so tight they are the pits to rip out!!!
