My Singer Centennial 15-88 Canadian treadle


Wow, two posts in one day! This is the 15-88 treadle that I do most of my sewing on. It was difficult to get a good picture of it in my tiny sewing room, but you get the idea. It was made in 1951 (Singer's Centennial year) in St. Jean, Quebec Canada. It is set up right now for free motion quilting; I just use the generic plastic free motion foot and it works just fine on this machine.

I just found one of these machines on a garage sale. I'm very excited to experiment with it, but need to wait until we get the leather belt replaced. It is a beautiful machine and I love that I will be able to sew even when the electricity is off.

Hi Jody:

These are great machines to sew on! They are so relaxing to sew with :-). You should be able to get a new leather belt at your local sewing repair shop or they should be able to order one if they don't have them in stock. Have fun!
