Vintage and industrial sewing machines. A tinkerer's blog. I buy, collect, refurbish and sell vintage sewing machines. Pre 1970s all metal machines are my favorite. I've developed a love for these mechanical creations of industrial art. I also love meeting the people who use them. Creative designers, artisans and craftspersons who are able to make things with these marvels. Don't forget to view the videos of the machines in action.
