Surprisingly, they are getting popular again, mostly because they *don't* require electricity. If you live in an area where you lose power a lot, or want to be a bit more green, I can see a treadle or handcrank (which is more portable) being a nice solution.

You might like to see some examples of the quilting that can be done on a treadle. Really very nice: http://www.antiquequiltdating.com/no...ewmachine.html . Did I mention how beautiful those machines are?
