Last week I was in our Bibles for Missions Thrift store & you will never guess what I found! A treadle sewing machine! Even better was that it was only $25. It works & has all of its parts. My only problem is I haven't had time to sit down with it & figure out how to thread it. It is much different than any other treadle that I have seen. It will take some getting used to because up until now my electric Singer has been my main stay but I am excited to learn how. How many of you remember someone in your family who used a treadle sewing machine? How many of you have your family's treadle sewing machine. Tell us of your memories of it?! Pass on the stories of how simple life used to be. How the world was before electricity. I know my kids can't remember a time before cell phones so I know they can't imagine a world without electricity.
