We have been amazed at the number of “Complete Guide To Treadle Sewing Machines” books we have sold in the past few months! It seems like the old/antique treadle sewing machines are making a comeback, and immediately the new buyers want to know more about the machine and how to get it back in working order, if it isn’t currently working.
I learned how to sew on my mothers’ treadle sewing machine, and I wish I had it now. It would be fun teaching my grandchildren how to work the good old treadle machine!
For all those who are buying the treadle sewing machines, you may find out quickly that you need to get a new treadle belt. The belt is probably one of the most important aspects of getting the machine to run properly. The belt can’t be too loose or too tight.
We carry the premium leather treadle sewing machine belts – 72″ x 3/16″, with the connecting hook. For a very limited time, we are putting them on sale – regularly $10.00 each – now $5.95 each, and they come with instructions on how to attach the belt.
If you have a treadle sewing machine or know someone who does, pass this information along – the sale is for a limited time.
