I own a freaking treadle!




woke up this morning, looked on craigs list, and found this for $60. so i ran out the house, got some cash, and went to find it, and it was still available!!!! it has a bunch of pressure foot attachments, including a ruffler foot. I love it, everything moves so smoothly, and it even had the original manual. which is good cause i have no clue how to use it. its only missing the belt to turn the needle. it has a couple extra bobbins too, and some really old spools. i love it. the date on the manual say 1912.

I have one similar and it works like a charm. I paid $75 for it and got it at a yard sale. Love it.

Glad you were able to get this one for you.

Hi Codi,
Great deal and I love to sew on mine, perfect stitches. You can get a belt at any Singer Co. It looks in great shape.

What a beauty! I have a treadle. Mine is missing a couple of pieces. I would love to take it for a test drive.
