treadle sewing machine
Does anyone have (and use) a treadle sewing machine? Do you like it? I saw one on Craigslist for $150. The brand appears to be New Home and the ad says that it needs a new belt. Could I get something like that at a machine shop? Do old machines do a straight stitch or a chain stitch?
Lehman's has a modern machine with a custom made cabinet, but it is really expensive! They are also back ordered for the foreseeable future, so that's not an option for a lot of reasons.
