Announcement    FAST SHIPPING so you can get back to sewing! Please shop for items for your new or old machines. For many items I include directions to help you, like how a long bobbin should be wound, how to install a substitute 12x1 needle, and slide plate adjustments. Your treadle fairy godmother is hoping you are bringing an old sewing machine back into use. Get your vintage treadle or hand crank machine clean and working. A treadle sewing machine should glide almost effortlessly with just a gentle heel-toe movement.

About TreadleLady

Sales 13,639
On Etsy since 2009

"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.

I haven't used an electric machine since 1993. With these old beauties, I can 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.
