A new project. Like I'm not busy enough, right
(ok, enough of the Southern California colloquialism).
J. won't allow it in the house. It needs some, let's say, refinishing.
The treadle and existing machine do, seemingly stitch.
I'm thinking of sanding and either staying with a light stain, natural or maple, if I can. The veneer is rather thin - but on top about 1/4". Or, perhaps a lighter paint. I'm not sure yet. My father thinks a cabinetmaker might be in order, obviously he knows my woodworking skills (and my dad is a general contractor).
I also plan to convert this 1957 Singer 201K below - which has a fabulous stitch - into the treadle machine. My only concern is that it is a wonderful electric machine - and I have never previously treadled, as it were.
P.S. I'm getting on a knit shirt kick I believe (although I may quickly sew some summer skirts). . . my work schedule is full BUT I am taking a sew-cation in August and September!
