hi, @Hannah Violet


Husband has grown to accept that it's perfectly normal to talk to machines. How on earth would they know what I want them to do, otherwise?

Hello and welcome from me as well.  I love old sewing machines and especially treadles. I have two that do not get used enough I am afraid but that will change soon.

 Hi Hannah Violet,

Welcome, I'm new too, I expect that like me you are looking forward to meeting 'the natives' - who thankfully seem to be very friendly!  You seem to have an impressive collection of vintage sewing machines, I only have one vintage but I did learn to sew on one.  I love the look of them they are works of art - i would have more but have no space for them.   See you around  :vintage:
