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

"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.
