My 1920’s Treadle Sewing Machine

A few months ago, I was fortunate enough to come across a treadle sewing machine in the most perfect condition and I just realized that I never shared pictures of all its splendorous details!

I purchased this The Free treadle sewing machine while thrifting one evening and surprisingly it had its entire box of feet parts, most of its painted decoration still intact, the original warranty and the original instruction booklet. TooΒ cool, right?

I’ve never sewn on a treadle, but I’m hoping I will get to soon. Now all I have to do is take everything apart and learn to clean and oil it. Oh, and replace the leather treadle belt. It’ll be a challenge, but I think I’m up to it. I hope…
