I drove a willing friend to a Biggest Morning tea (with a difference) last weekend. Ray and Lorraine opened their home, to display Ray's collection of machines, Lorraine's collection of quilts and the local quilting group cooked up a delicious array of morning tea treats, all to raise funds for the Cancer Council.
These cute machines were in a display case, which was lucky because that eliminated the temptation to take one home!
Naturally the red one was my favorite!
And I got to treadle to my hearts content on this machine! I discovered it is harder to get started on a treadle then you would think. If you don't start off the right way the wheel goes backwards and you break your thread. I got the hang of it fairly quickly though. So now I am lusting after a treadle, in a beautiful cabinet! I can see the risk of having one though, every child that came into the house would want to have a "play", but I guess that's exactly what I was doing too!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
