Treadle Sewing machines

treadle sewing machinesMy friend and ex-mother-in-law is getting up in years and lives where it’s cold and snowy. Since a fall and back trouble she has been thinking of reducing her house hold items and moving to a smaller place. Needless to say I have a car load of material, batting, thread and even some furniture.

I arrived down the hill with my load of goodies and wondering where am I going to store all of this material. Of course my husband right away says we will finish putting up more shelves up for you in the sewing area. He’s so thoughtful.

Anyways with this inherited car load of material am planning on making some wonder ovens for some friends and church bags, so as I am getting started I am looking at my sewing machine and going wow, what if I didn’t have electricity?…
