That's wonderful Kathy! I would have loved to have had grandma's or my mom's treadle! I'm planning on refinishing the solid oak cabinet although it's not in horrible shape for it's age.
Comment by Kathy Bilotto on Sunday

Shelia great find. Believe it or not I am n my way back home from California with my grandmothers treadle machine. Mine will need some love also because my sister used it as a plant stand and there is some damage to the veneer. I will post a picture after I get home and take one. The nice thing is one of her relatives worked in the art department and put her name on it.

Sherri I like the tree skirt. I don't put a tree up any more either, can't keep the daughters cat out of it.

If I'm lucky, mine won't turn into Bronchitis...again. LOL!

Sheila, that's ok because I'm down with bronchitis...again.

Yes, I've been scouring websites. Found a manual and rather positively identified the model. When I called Singer, the poor woman had to do a lot of searching but, she's pretty certain that the serial number was authorized in 1892. There were 2 wooden boxes of attachments (looks like torture chamber devices). I was even able to identify the decal as Sphinx (aka Memphis). The amish neighbors think they can get me the info on where the repair shop is in Holmes county that works on these old machines. It needs a belt before I can begin to determine how/if it works. This machine has the vibrating shuttle bobbin (which I believe my grandmother's machine had) so it will take me some time to relearn all of that. My mom had a White which I learned to sew on but, she traded it in on a really lousy Singer electric when I was oversears. The shop gave her a whopping $25 trade in. Grrrr...I was upset. 

Linda, I've got to put off coming up for a bit more as I'm down with a horrible cold right now. 

Comment by Sherri Eley on Saturday

Sheila great score.  I wish I had my grandmother's old treadle.  I do not know what happened to it.  I think someone in the family took the machine out and made a tale out of the cabinet.  But I wish I had it.  

Comment by Linda Koller on Saturday

Sherri, WOW! That was quite a bargain!

Comment by Sheila Craft on Saturday

Splendid Job, Sherri! We don't put up a tree any more, either (although that may change as DD is now a foster mom to the sweetest little girl). I think your idea of putting it away for grandchildren is a great idea. I believe we often forget about them when we contemplate our future.


I've got to tell you all about a treadle sewing machine I scored on an online auction the other day! For $50.01, I am now the proud mama of an 1892 Singer 27 made in Kilbowie Scotland. Needs a little bit of cleaning up and a belt; but, I think I got me a winner.

Well, I tried to cut & past the photos to the bottom of the post but, kept losing them. This is how it is.

Hello Sherri,

What a great  job you have Don, the tree skirt looks wonderful, but so complicated, I could never attempt anything like that, please don't put it in the bin, it would be appreciated by so many, it is just lovely.

Comment by Sherri Eley on Saturday

Finished this xmas tree skirt today.  Used up a lot of my scrap xmas fabrics.  I would like to make another one in blues and grays.  This is from a pattern in Quiltmaker magazine issue Nov/Dec 17.  I am not a fan of using templates but I tackled this one anyway and it turned out well.  Now just have to figure out what to do with it.  We do not put up a tree anymore,  and I have given all my children Tree skirts in the past.  So this one has no home.  I guess I will put it away and if I need an unexpected gift,  then I will have one.  Or it will go into the bin of quilts for my grand daughters after I am gone....
