I don't have a vintage machine yet. Still looking for a nice feather weight.

Linda said...

Hi Kim. Yes, I own a vintage treadle machine. I don't know the year, but the brand is Minnesota, which was made for and sold by Sears Roebuck. Just 2 weeks ago my dad, with the help of YouTube, helped me put a belt on it, get it oiled up, and in good working condition. My mom helped me learn to use it. I still need a lot of practice before I attempt to make a project on it.

I own my Grandmother's 'Good Home' or something like that, sewing machine, sadly no book. I can't get the tension to behave to sew a basic stitch. At least it has a pretty table cabinet that I use as a table.

I have a Singer 301 that sews like a dream.

Karen M said...

I do not have a 'vintage' machine. My first machine was a Home sewing machine that I received from my then fiance in 1969. It was my only machine for a long time. During an inter-state move, it was unfortunately, inappropriately stored. It has rusted and the case has all but fallen apart. In 2010 I bought a Huskvarna Viking Saphire. I love it.

lindav said...

I have a Singer 301! Great ol' machine :)

Lee said...

I have a featherweight I bought last April. I haven't used it yet though! Kind of nervous about it.

12Create said...

I would love to own an old treddle machine. I remember my grandma and my godmother both having one and I was fascinated by them. I wish I had one or both of them now. My Mum also had an old Singer in a wooden box. I'm not sure why because I don't recall her ever sewing.

Crickets Corner said...

I did own a Singer 99K but had to sell it for medical bills. One of these days I'll have another one. Until then I'll use my Bernina 1260. Could be considered vintage at 20+ years old?
I know you didn't ask but my bucket list of machines includes a Juki TL-2010Q for a new machine, my Bernina 1260 and another Singer 99K. Once I achieve having those machines I'll be in 7th heaven.

Chrissy said...

Happy National Quilting Day,
I have never heard of the still stitching doco but a singer 99k is the only machine I own I think I should check it out

Deb said...

Happy National Quilting Day! Ummm, not going to admit how many Vintage machines I have, including my Grandmother's FW named Hazel after her and yes,

scottylover said...

I own a vintage Kenmore portable machine that I use as a back up and for classes. It is from the 70's so I don't know if it actually counts as vintage, though! I can't remember the model number, but they sometimes refer to it as the Kenmore :featherweight."

Astrid said...

Happy National Quilting Day! I learnt to sew on my late mom's Singer. I still have my grandmother's treadle Singer machine, but unfortunately I couldn't bring it with me when I moved abroad, it's at a dear friend's place.

charity-crafter said...

I don't own a vintage machine, but I would love to get a treadle machine or featherweight. I'm waiting to discover in a yard sale that little block box that the seller doesn't understand what they have and just want to get rid of it. I know, I'm dreaming. The giveaway looks like fun. I've been thinking of signing up for the box.

Emily C said...

I have a Singer Featherweight. I really love the older machines. Having a machine that weighs so little is great with my small apartment. I can set up and take down whenever I need to.

pupton said...

We have my husband's grandmother's 3/4 Kenmore. I had it serviced so I could use it but I could never get the hang of it (tension problems neither of us could solve).

Gale, Ky quilter said...

Yes! I own a 1941 Singer, beautiful black, gold & red lettering and decals. I found it through a local facebook yard sale. Fifty dollars, knee pedal, in a cabinet and when I bought her she wasn't working. I brought her home, cleaned her, oiled her, put the belt on correctly and she runs like a new one. My pride and joy. I named her "Susie Singer" and since I bought her on my granddaughter's 14th birthday, Elizabeth will inherit her one day. :-)

Blessed be, hugs!!!
