I collect, rehab and donate vintage sewing machines

It’s vintage sewing machines like these that capture my imagination. They also happen to have been made to last, made to be serviced. This means I can actually get into them, probably fix what’s wrong, and move them along. 

In these pages I’ll be keeping track of the machines I’ve been donated (or sometimes I bought), the repairs needed, and the final condition before it leaves my house. For more information on what I do, see this article published in The Reminder newspaper of the Pioneer Valley (Western Massachusetts), Oct 17, 2020:
