Vintage Machines

My messy spot where I was sewing.  I took my Singer 99 converted hand crank.  I have another one I need to sell.
I took lots of pictures at the TOGA, unfortunately my camera has died and we can't find the charger since the move.  That means all of my pictures were taken on my phone.  I tried to take lots of pictures of the machines but I know I missed some.  I'll identify the ones I can.
Brown Domestic and a funky foot pedal to the left.  This was a heavy machine!

Chain Stitchers

More Chain Stitchers

On the left that cute little machine is a Bell I think.

My green Premier

A Pfaff

A Singer 66 Redeye or Redhead

Singer 66 with Lotus Decals

I love the green on these two machines!


There were several machines I realize that I did not get pictures of!

Of course you cannot have a TOGA without people!
I was playing with my camera and took my first ever selfie with my friend Valerie.  She is from England and has machines at her home in England and her home in Dallas.  LOL
I got to meet a new bloggy friend, Deborah.  She blogs at Square Granny She learned about the TOGA on my blog and came for the first time.  We are holding my strings quilt.

I have made so many friends there!

I still need to tell you about the demos, but they will have to wait because I have already included too many pictures!

Looks and sounds like you had a lot of fun. I love the sewing machines. They are just as addicting as fabric.

Thank you for sharing your photos Missy. I didn't take near enough either. How nice Deborah saw the info about the NE TX TOGA on your blog and attended! I was fortunate to meet her too. Valerie is a delight isn't she! Hugs, Allison in Plano

Sew glad you had fun. Oh for a working chainstitcher (mine has too many broken and frozen parts to ever sew again). Lisa's are pretty, but, out of my price range. I want to 'recover' a machine case one day. I'm glad Allison has directions on Bonnie's blog.
