    There is a treadle in LA. It’s was my mothers. It is a Singer Sewing Machine #27 with instruction book (badly falling apart). It hasn’t been used in many years and the treadle head needs to be put back in the cabinet. I used the cabinet for my electric sewing machine head. Let me know if you want it? I’m in the area (South Pasadena).

    I ordered 6 DVD’s from Homestead Blessings. I have the ones on canning, herbs, candle making, bread making, gardening and also soap making. I highly recommend them. They are worth their weight in gold. I’m hoping to order the sewing one soon!

    I was just thinking this morning about designing a new quilt. I will have to order this one. I love these women!!!

    There are still treadle machines out there, as the Amish around here use them. But they sometimes just convert an electric machine into a treadle machine. Any belt-driven machine can be converted (NO computerized sewing machines) and you can make it switch back and forth if you wish. I prefer electric, but would sure like to be able to convert it during long power outages.

    Try Lehman’s online. They have just begun to sell a modern version of a threadle machine. Or Craigslist you can find good sewing machines.
