Well, perhaps I should call it an OLD toy, but it is new to me.
I have been wanting a working treadle machine for some time. I found one in my price range, and bought it on my birthday a couple of weeks ago. My new toy just for me! It came complete with manuals, bobbins, attachments, even some vintage thread in the drawer. And it works. It needs a bit of TLC and would benefit from a new belt, but that I can cope with.
Now, like some of you, I try to follow a rule that when I bring something new into my home, something else should leave, just to maintain balance in my small house. Does the garbage count? Worn out clothes? I certainly am not parting with any of my other sewing machines! What would you purge to make room for a fun toy like this? © 2013 by The Curious Quilter, thecuriousquilter.net, maryeoriginals.com. All rights reserved.
