I have a lovely old Singer treadle which I regret to say I never use these days, and also a Feather Weight which I have never even tried, I would have to get it checked before I turned it on, don't think it's been used for 20 years. I am loving my new Brother PQ1500, it has all the benefits of modern technology, but is not computerised and only does a straight stitch, no zig zag.
Just back from a ride (pedal)to the post and drinking a coffee collected on the way home.
