  1. Actually, I use treadles and hand cranks every chance I get. I rarely use a machine powered by electricity. (And I’d absolutely love to have a little handcrank like the one you show. I think it would be so much fun to use for “redwork” embroidery–in every color of the rainbow!

    • This sewing machine has been around our house as long as I can remember, but no one in my family ever used it–I didn’t know it could be used. Do you have photos showing how you do your work? I will explore… Thanks for your comment!

  4. I LOVE OLD MACHINES AND TRY TO GET EVERYONE I find cheap, to work then when a kid wants to learn sew I can let them learn basic sewing on something that can take a somewhat beating GREAT FUN The one I like the best is called the Grasshopper from Elna sounds like old thashing machine but sews like a charm and the green carring case is a joy!!!! LOOK IT UP and think the tv show the MONSTERS almost a twin to someones lunch box HA HA
