My new DIL came to see me today and brought her SM that used to belong to
her Grandmother. We cleaned and oil it and on the sales recite when her
grandmother bought it is written 1924 Singer. It was a treadle and is now
in a portable case with a rounded wooden top. So I explained about getting
a hand crank for it. The machine sews forward only, and sews like a dream!
There were 5 bobbins and a box of attachments including a ruffler and zipper
foot. It is exactly like the treadle I used to make most of my high school
clothing. She said that her EX has the treadle base and she is going to ask
him to let her have it back.
Next week when she comes we are going to read over the pattern and cut out
her daughter some summer pajamas. Ha! Now I've started another person
