If you are ever over here, there is a second hand/antique furniture store in Thorndale and they nearly always have treadles. If you called first, he'd be sure to line one or two up for you if he doesn't have any in stock at the moment. I bought a nice one from him.
"Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise,making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. " Eph 5:15,16

Have you hugged your goose today?

Use their search function, but I'd use "sewing" as the key word instead of "treadle". Many of the people listing things don't spell well, and you can miss a great deal if you don't wade through them. On the plus side, if they misspell it, fewer other people may see it!!!
Where words and actions disagree, the heart is revealed.
Look how often the unexpected happens... and we still don't expect it.

DH had it oiled and running like a champ in no time. I have been practicing with it to get the whole treadle motion down. What a blast. Be moving soon from practice pieces to a project.
The only thing I am looking for online right now is needles. Also, if anyone can explain the different needles they sell (what the letters or numbers mean) I would appreciate the help. I figured it has to do with the needle gauge but I am finding out this may not be the case.

The nrs on the needles are the thickness. Each fabric needs itīs own thickness of needle.
The rare triangular needles are for leather.

A few days later she walked through the woods in her new wolfskin furcoat...
Lesson learned, so not mess with girls who are brave enough to go into the woods on their own.

You can't always get what you want, babe
But if you try sometimes, you just might find
You get what you need.
