    Cool Hi

    Hi there,
    never really know what to say in introductions,
    Am a Treadler from the UK, my sewing journey started in 2013, with a electric sewing machine.
    During a chair restoration project (something never done before but the chair needed repairing, saw a video and thought why not ),
    an electrical surge happened, was sewing at the time. the machine wouldn't stitch right afterwards, long story short, looked for a handcrank sewing machine, finished the chair, then learnt as much as possible and restored a 201 treadle. which now piece and free motion quilt with.
    thought it be nice to join, chat, and admire all your wonderful projects,
    kind regards
    Treadler

    Hello Treadle and welcome to the forum from Michigan, USA. So happy you've joined us, this is a great place. A treadle machine?...... I'm impressed! I hand quilt, and that's about as old fashion as I plan on being. How fun, though......I do have my grandmas treadle.....? Mmmmmm

    Hello and welcome from North Carolina, USA. I inherited my mother's treadle but have yet to build up the courage to do more than straight piecing.

    I'm sure you will be happy you joined this forum.
