My Early Christmas Present!!

My daughter and son-in-law found this machine at a flea market and knew it was the right gift for me!! Now the power can go out this winter and I can still sew!! LOL!  Just need to figure it out, a manual is ordered.

Minnesota machines were sold by Sears way back when and there is a lot of information out there on these vintage treadle machines. Mine seems to be in very good shape. 

Here are the parts to do all kinds of things, just need to get that manual. Even a ruffler. Anyone needing anything ruffled? See the bobbin with the purple thread on it? It fits in the shuttle for the bottom thread.

The inside of the drawer where the parts are kept and I have 5 bobbins in those small holes!

The treadle foot plate.
