Vintage Sewing Machines

I have a collection of vintage sewing machines and use them in the classes when I teach sewing.

We clean and service them ourselves. And in order to do that I have made sure that we have a supply of spare parts.





Some of the machines are 60 years old and parts are not available anymore. Many times technicians who service vintage sewing machines have boxes full of all sorts of spare parts.

Unpacking in the studio this week I found a few of my boxes.


The first one of a number of boxes of different presser feet for different sewing machines. The boxes will have to be resorted. Some of the feet have long or high shanks, some have short shanks and some are clip ons. Some are for Singer machines, some for Brother and others are for White and Elna. Still more have Cyrillic writing on them so I will have to check and see which machines they can be used on.
