Probably the one item I love the most in my Dad’s house is this antique Singer treadle sewing machine. It comes from my grandmother, passed down to my mother- who used it to display items in her formal living room:
The condition is very good, the only missing part is the front scarf between the 4 drawers. The machine is in fair shape, very ornate. Of course, I forgot to look and write down the number.
If my dad decides to give this to me at a later time, then I plan to completely restore both the cabinet and machine. I would love to even use it to piece a quilt, too.
This machine and cabinet has minimal monetary value- you can pick up a similar cabinet with machine for about $100 on ebay. To me, this is an emotional piece, it connects me to my mother and grandmother.
Has anyone restored an old Singer?
