The World is full of Lovely People

I have a really old Singer Treadle Machine. I have had it for years and it has been just sitting around collecting dust. I am finally getting ready to clean it up and use it. The problem was that one of the wheels was missing and it made it really difficult to move. I posted my problem on one of the Singer Vintage forums and a lovely man named Jay emailed me that he repairs old Singers. He sent me a wheel and didn't even ask for payment up front. How trusting is that? Now that I have put the wheel on, I can start working on cleaning and oiling the machine. Jay tells me that his wife Sharron is a quilter has a picture of a quilt she did in the August issue of Quilters World Magazine. I have to look for that.
