LOVE it!! Purchased with the wheel spoke to modify my singer 66 to hand crank from power motor. Very smooth and quiet! Only issue is the mount wiggle sometimes, might add a rubber washer or something to stablize it a little more not too big of a deal at this point.

Our singer 66 was missing its pin. This is perfect- comes with felt pad for the thread cone to sit on.

Perfect! My singer 66 bobbin tire was cracked and sticky, this new one- size small- fit like a charm and now can wind bobbins perfectly! Follow instructions for measuring before picking size :)

Awesome my singer 66 works like a charm smooth quiet sewing. The instructions with it is more than sufficient to assist the owner in replacing spokes <3

About

"Treadles are like classic cars, take them for a Sunday drive."

Foot powered treadle sewing machines are wonderful to use. Many sewers own one for decoration. I encourage people to clean and oil them and take them for a Sunday drive now and then.

I haven't used an electric machine since 1993. With these old beauties I sew, quilt, free motion quilt and even free motion embroider. I'm not limited in any way. Two of my machines are zig-zag treadles made in the late 1950s, one for the German market and another for the Russian market.

Everything I sew is lovingly made with care on a vintage human powered iron lady or gent and most have nicknames. There are about 21 treadles in my home, many hand crank machines and we won't talk about how many are in the garage.

You can watch some old videos on my YouTube channel, TreadleLady.
