Look at my new toys! :)
My friend Luther gave these to me today. The treadle works, though I don't know if the timing is right and if it actually stitches.
Here is a close up of The Free machine. The drawers won't open unless the top is opened. They lock when the machine is put away. One drawer pull is missing, and some awful metal one got put on in its place.
This is all the stuff that was in the drawers. I have no idea what most of it is.
Here is the other machine. It's either called The Homemaker or The Homestead. I can't remember, and I don't want to go down the basement to double check right now. It's missing the base.
This is all the stuff that came in these drawers. I think the bullet looking thing is a bobbin case. The two little envelopes have machine needles in them.
There were also two church calendars from July and August 1980. Otherwise, I know nothing about these. On Stitcher's Guild Margie directed me to Treadle On, so I've been over there reading and researching. Any other guidance, advice, or links would be greatly appreciated. Cleaning up and using these will be a fun winter project!
