    Now, Tootsie just won’t do. This is a hardy girl and she needs a hardy name like Ethel or Martha. Or she could be Caroline which is the name of the Mom from Little House on the Prairie.

    When I first looked at your New Home machine, the name Miranda just popped into my head. Such a pretty machine should be called by a lovely name.

  3. What was the name of the gal you worked with at the hat shop? Could that be name?

    I LOVE the idea of using the spool to remember specific projects! I would do this but my spools are nowhere as pretty ( just being cheap plastic most of the time ). I am looking out for a set of jenga blocks to write inspirational quotes on for my daughters so I really do appreciate this kind of idea, Thanks.

    Hi Kayla,
    Remembering happy times in the Millinery! Great machine.

    I don’t know about names for your machine, but I ended up with several wood spools that were my grandmothers and most precious to me spools that were my mothers, who passed away in 2002. I found a man who carved on those really large antique spools and he was able to carve an angel on one and a magnolia on another with a Santa Clause face on the other side of the magnolia so I could just turn it around for Christmas. I keep these displayed around my home and whenever I see them, they remind me of my loved ones. Just a fun and attractive way to keep those old wooden spools. Happy sewing. j

    I recently acquired a 1908 New Home treadle. I have not used a treadle before this and I would love to know the proper threading for one. Would you be willing to share pictures of the proper way to thread this machine? I am sure mine is close enough to yours that it would be threaded the same way.
    Thank you, kindly!
    What did you finally decide for your machine? :D
