I recently bought this treadle frame from a friend. I bought it sight unseen, kinda. My sister sent me a picture of the frame and I bought it from the photo. I only gave $25 for it. I thought it was a pretty good price. I'm going to add a wooden top and use it for a bedside table.
When I picked it up at mom's over Christmas, the lady sent a ziplock back of goodies and told my mom that I would probably want these. She was right. Look what was in there.
A box of rusty attachments, the owners manual for the sewing machine, some vintage rulers, some vintage emery boards, lots of wooden spools of thread.
And what are these little gems? I thought they were bobbins for the sewing machine that was, sadly thrown away.
But no, here is the bobbin for the treadle
I was amused at how they saved this thread from something, wound it on a piece of cardstock and no doubt had intentions of using it one day.
The owner's certificate of authenticity folded neatly in the middle of the owners manual.
And the owner's manual that's seen it's better days!
It's still intact and readable but extremely fragile. I'm not sure what, if anything, that I'm going to do with it. Suggestions????
And did you ever wonder what all the gadgets were in those attachment boxes. Well, wonder no more. Everything is explained in the manual.
The one of the left is a "Tucker" and the one on the right is a "Ruffler"
All those gizmo's in the lid are various sizes of "Hemmers".
Too bad I don't have the treadle machine to go with all these attachments. It was fun exploring all the things in the bag anyway.
