This weekend was my sixth wedding anniversary. My husband and I went out to lunch and then went thrifting, which is what we did on our first date.
I was amazed when I saw this at Goodwill.
I need to find a manual for it...that metal part on the top is the tension mechanism, and I have no idea how to thread through it. I can't wait to try it out.
However, this is my ninth treadle and my third that is complete in its cabinet. I love getting them, cleaning them up, researching them and discovering their stories, but I don't have space to warehouse them. I emailed a museum to see if they'd be interested in some of my non-functioning machine heads. It would be nice for them to go somewhere where they'd be appreciated and admired. There just aren't that many people out there who want them.
