Experience 4-H

4-H spent a day at the Farmers' Market. We had animals, a game table, and hand crank sewing machines. Our sewing project was bean bags. Those stale beans I had made great filler! Many thanks to Mary Reeves for helping me round up the Singer 99s, Catherine (another member of the treadle owners' list) who provided expert advice and instructions, and the local 4-H sewing club, Sew Krafty Kids, for their help and smiling faces. Our Go Green! Sew Green in 4-H was a huge success.

Hi Sally, how did you convert your electric machine to a handcrank. I told my daughter about it and she thought I meant "treadle." Had never heard of a handcrank. I'd like one just to show her! Looks like you all were having a wonderful time.

Please stay tuned! I have many asking for the instructions. There are sites for that and suppliers for the cranks and spoked wheels.
