What an success. It’s beautiful! I just unearthed my great-grandma’s old Singer and you’ve got me attempting to get it running again. You know that if you ever do get too sick and tired of cranking out seams you’ve also got a gorgeous piece of folk artwork, right? Oh my such fun! It’s a work of art!
I’m on a bit of an antique machine kick myself, so this really tickled my fancy! I purchased a Singer hand cranked machine for my girls last Christmas. I love the true way you preserved that one. I think the shiny finish paint is essential for these re-paints. I did one in a flatter surface finish, and it does not look right.
I’m motivated to do a little sanding and try again. The color is liked by me job! It is rather pretty & you saved an excellent machine, but I don’t understand why you don’t use the 3 treadles you say you have. What stamina and patience to complete up this l-o-n-g project! Wow, it’s sooo spiffy! OrrtannaKat, this machine was specifically made to travel with me to crafting/sewing events where there is no electricity. I don’t use the three treadles I own mainly because they’re in storage space. Maybe in our next house I’ll have enought room to also sew on the treadle! Love the complete story and love the device!
