I love sewing machines.
Old sewing machines, new sewing machines. All the sewing machines.
I love sewing with them, I love researching about them and I love buying them.
No machine should be left to rust away to nothing, forgotten in a shed.
I particularly love machines that are interesting and special along the timeline of invention. There is joy in the discovery and in bringing them back to life.
Each one has its own story to tell…here are mine:
DISCLAIMER: I am an amateur vintage sewing machine collector and tinkerer, I do this for my own enjoyment.
Please do not ask me to help you value your machine. I also will not respond to requests for advice relating to repair or restoration. I am not an expert repairer, I am a tinkerer, I like to fiddle and learn but I cannot help you diagnose problems with your machine or help you repair it. There are some really useful websites on my Online Resources page, linked above.
None of my machines or accessories are for sale and I do not give away, lend or sell my manuals, scanned or otherwise, for free or for any sort of payment/trade.
