Ya know what Idee? I would use this machine in a New York minute. I have been a steady seamstress for most of my life. Then the sewing machines started coming out computerized and the patterns and sergers all have new terminology. I lost interest.

I’ll have to get mine opened up and get a closeup, but here is one out of my phone. I just had to crop the photo for now. This was my grandma’s. It now is just used as an accent piece that holds a 12 pack of coke and some flowers.

Picked up mine at an auction last weekend. Got it sewing today. Just something to pass the time away. I'll probably give it away or put it on Craig's list.

I don’t think mines as ornamental with the paint. I haven’t opened it up in a while.

Makes me cry....   I have literally junked a dozen foot treadle to electric sewing machines like that when I was a kid. The dumb things you do when you are young....
