Treadle Quilt Group, Anyone?
I know some people use vintage sewing machines that aren't people-powered as well. Frankly, I'm so old that the sewing machine I bought my first year out of university is now considered vintage--and it's still one of my favorites--and it is, indeed, electric.
There are already groups for people who collect (ISMACS) and use people-powered machines (Treadle On), but I'm not aware of more specialized discussion groups.
If you're a vintage machine quilter (or embroiderer), and would like to join forces, or more accurately, share ideas and experiences, please let me know.
P.S.: You'll need to let me know with the e-mail address at which you wish to receive mail so I can issue an invitation. (The list was set up as private to help avoid spammers or address harvesters.) If you comment on this blog and have yourself set to "no-reply", I will not be able to invite you. If you don't want to e-mail me *and* have yourself set to "no-reply" *and* put your e-mail address into a comment on this post, please use the word "at" instead of the sign, because using the sign opens yourself up to those drones who search for e-mail addresses. Thanks.
