More Sewing Machines

I have some more machines to show you, hand cranks and treadles!  It took me over an hour to scale down all the images (some will be in another post), so this will be a silent picture (mostly anyways) post.  You can click on the pictures to make them larger.
These blue flowers are beautiful!
Don't you love this bird?

Plymouth Economy - I actually won this at the TOGA, I just need more information on it!

Featherweights!







See this knee bar?  They are very rare, it reminds me of a crow bar!  This is a Singer 99k






Spartan - I love how each person has their own little personality in the middle of their machine!

I love the colors of the old machines!

Awesome...what a collection of machines in the room. I don't have anything vintage other than my 1980's Singer. But I do keep my eyes open for good deals on Craigslist for any sewing machines. I figure it never hurts to have a spare or two around.

So nice to see all of those OLD machines being taken care of and used and loved.
Thanks for the time and posting of the pics!

I just acquired a 221 featherweight, which sews like a dream. I also have a 1900 Singer treadle and a Singer 99...my favorite machines are the ones that have been around awhile :) The machines you have shared are so lovely...and the fact that they are so easy to use and maintain, makes sewing a joy! m.

Now that is what I call a bunch of vintage sewing machines. Some are so neat with all the detail work.

What lovely vintage sewing machines. I could not pick just one. I have an old singer treadle, for show only although it does work.
Have a wonderful weekend,

Ah - such beauties! I love the Singer shuttle bobbin machine I have. A hand cranked machine has so much better precision control than an electric (although I have one of these too).
