I've been trawling for an antique sewing machine and cabinet for Zoe's birthday. And yes, this is what is on her wish list... When I was a child we had our (electric) machine in an old Singer treadle cabinet, and I was endlessly fascinated by it and did wish that you could sew with your own foot power, so I do understand the attraction. If I could get a treadle machine working smoothly again, I'd go for it, if not I figure I'll have the pink Brother installed in it somehow. I do find the cabinets and the old machines themselves quite lovely.
