While I'm here, I thought I would post a picture of my old Singers.
The treadle sewing machine is a 1930's and I have never seen one before, but this one has the tension on the back, I don't know if that is rare or not, if anyone knows please leave a comment about it.
The hand cranked machine is a bit newer, I'm not sure how old it is.
I have actually made a quilt on the hand machine, it's lovely to work with and even has a reverse which the treadle machine does not.
I just love the old cabinet, it is a work of art on it's own.
