About Me: I
reproduction Civil War items several years ago. My clients appreciate
the quality of my work, attention to detail, and authenticity. I have
sewn for re-enactors, museums, theaters, a film producer, and many
clients just like you. I started the business several years ago and
have become an attraction at local craft shows as I sew on my antique
treadle sewing machine, dressed in period clothing. My husband and I
have decided to expand our clientele by offering my items through this
site. We believe you will appreciate the high quality products, the
fair prices, and the quick service.
I personally make all of the products I sell, right here in America. I
try to purchase my supplies from American companies as well. Most of
the items created at Treadle Treasures are done on a 1914 White Rotary
and an 1889 Singer treadle sewing machine. Minimal sewing is done on a
modern electric machine. My collection of treadle sewing machines is on
display in our home.
