Hello Laurie. My grandmother's treadle sewing machine is still operational
though we have no belt to run it at the present time. Some years ago now, I
did sew with it, re-thread the bobbin, etc.
Your query sent me to the drawers of this cabinet model Singer machine
(Cabinet de Salon No. 31) where I found in disintegrating condition, an
original booklet that came with the machine which shows pictures of the
various machines available by Singer. It had been purchased in Montreal and
where writing occurs, it is in French. Unfortunately, there is no diagram
as to how to thread the bobbin or the machine itself.
Is there help somewhere else on the internet? or at a sewing centre?
Thank you so much for bringing up this topic. Not only have I found the
remaining pages of the original booklet which I can now take measures to
preserve, but also realize that it is likely possible to date this
particular treasure from my grandmother.
Also, I'd like to find some diagrams to explain how it operates too.
