Some how my electric sewing machine got bumped during our move and ultimately isn’t working. The repair shop said it the part was more expensive than the machine, so they basically refused to fix it. Oh well.

I am no seamstress, but I do sew some things from time to time. I do enjoy using a machine, because hand sewing takes a bit more time.

I was lucky enough to find a good working Singer treadle sewing machine. It had all the accessories, but needed the bobbin cover and a new leather belt. So I ordered replacements and I was all set!

I never really set down to learn her though. I had my electric machine….except now it was gone. Time to get serious on how to use this antique machine.
