Welcome to this week's Telecast Thursday! This week I'm sharing a video about my Singer 66 treadle sewing machine. If you're not familiar with a treadle sewing machine, they are the old vintage ones that don't have a motor and are foot powered.
I often hear people say that a treadle machine doesn't work, when often there is only one small, but significant, part that would enable the machine to run: the belt. Most of the belts on these machines were made of leather, which, over time, would wear, become brittle and eventually break, rendering the machine "unuseable". This is a simple and inexpensive fix as new treadle belts can be purchased in either leather or rubber, for just a few dollars. Put on the new belt and you're ready to start stitching.
