Singer Treadle Machine

A few months ago, I came across this old Singer Treadle Sewing Machine.  I know that there is one in every attic and that most people's grandma's taught them to sew on one of these, but that wasn't the case with me.  I've always been fascinated by them, but have never owned one.

This one was a STEAL.

Of course, it doesn't work, and needs refurbishing, but it's a beautiful piece of furniture regardless.  

Maybe one day, when I have some spare funds, I'll get it into working order and try it out.

Do you have an old treadle machine?  Have you ever used one?

I do have one. It was my great grandma's. I've never used it but I love having it around.

Nice find ! They make great conversation pieces even if they dont work.

I had one as a kid which I used as a desk.

I have never owned or used one and the only ones I have ever seen have been in museums! Yours is lovely!
