I'm not a
quilter myself but have always been a huge admirer of the beauty and art form
and the historical significance that quilts represent. I was raised in Appalachia and have a particular fondness for those quilts that weave a story or document key events within a family's history. I do enjoy collecting old
treadle machines and have always been fascinated by their simple yet intricate
mechanics and their amazing durability over time. As a child I watched my
grandmother sewing on an early treadle machine passed down to her from her
own grandmother. It has since passed downed through at least three-four more generations
of our family and it's still going as strong as ever.
I joined this forum because I recently acquired a set
of rare back-mount presser feet attachments for a Singer Redeye 66 circa 1913.
I believe that is the only Singer machine these will actually fit and are quite rare to find a complete set. I don't currently own one of these models so I'd like to let those of you who
love these old Redeye's know that these attachments are available. Feel free to contact me at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an interest.
Thanks and happy quilting.
