Live Treadling with Mel

April 28, 2016

Ever since I shared my video about the panty hose treadle belt people have been asking me to show how my feet work when I'm treadling.  I figured I had put it off about as long as I could so I did a live Facebook video of it.  I really would have liked to sew more than I did but I had to hold the camera with one hand and that makes things a little difficult for me when I'm treadling.  I normally need one hand to guide the fabric and one to start the handwheel.

The video is a little rougher than I normally share with you here.  I did it live so there is no editing, just me with a jostling camera and a few drops.  The good news is hubby has promised me a tripod by the time I do Facebook like again!!!  That's awesome you'll be able to see so much more thanks to a tripod.

This is also my first time embedding a Facebook video here on the blog.  So if you can't watch it please let me know so I can troubleshoot the issue.  If you liked it don't forget to pin the graphic below.

  1. I don't have facebook so never saw your pantyhose treadle belt. How can I access that video? I would love to see how you did that. Thank you.

    1. Kathy I can post it next week. I've been meaning to talk about it here for those who don't have Facebook.
