Jim's Sewing Machine Collection
Sorry, we don't provide estimates.
Our Red Featherweight
Jim is fascinated with all things mechanical. The invention of spinning wheels, looms, and sewing machines represent a great mechanical advancement of modern man allowing him to cover himself with something other than animal skins. Additionally, the sewing machine allows man to decorate his surroundings with draperies and pretty bed coverings, etc.
Jim decided it was time he found something to do with his collection of "mechanical children" so he began to sew quilt fabric. Yes, he has been working on several wall hangings but mostly he has amassed a fine collection of fat quarters.
While Elizabeth seems to get most E-mailed questions regarding our machines--and is the better seamstress--the sewing machine collection is Jim's. He is the one who gets them working then places them on a shelf. Please send all questions or comments to him at the address below. Note: it's a graphic.
There are several groups whose members know a lot more about sewing machines than we do. If a person decides to collect sewing machines or has a question about one, we would recommend you consider joining one or more of these groups and make your posting there. For Singers, we especialy like the Vintage Singer group on Yahoo. ISMACS is also a fine group for all other types. Of course, there other folks who concentrate on Necci, Wilcox & Gibbs, etc.
