This is where anyone who has a vintage machine or has interest in vintage sewing machines are welcome and feel free to pull up a stool and sit a spell!!!!

I want everyone to feel like they are family and do not be afraid to share knowledge with us. Remember this is OUR shop and I want it to be a wonderful place for us to step back into time and relive the "Golden Age" of sewing machines.

As you can tell by the decor it is almost like you just stepped back into history sometime in the 50's and boy would you look at the machines and the store front! No modern cars out there!! We have the Doo Wop and Big Band playing in the background and unlike some places we have all sorts of machines here from treadles to the latest and greatest Japanese machines (I wonder if they will ever catch on) and of course we even have several FW's!!

So now let the fun begin!!!

I have not been on this website since they changed their format, it did not agree with my old computer. I still have my old computer, so not sure if this will work, any how, I have an a FW Singer 221-1 that I have a problem with. I have a piece of thread caught in the bobbin casing and has frozen my wheel, it will not turn. How do I get the thread out of the bobbin casing? Do I need to take it apart?

    I inherited a FW from my grandmother (basically, because, thankfully, no one else wanted it). The inside of the case smells "odd". Is there a way to remove it. I've tried airing it out and putting dryer sheets in it. Any help?

    Hi! I've always found white or cider vinegar diluted in water works to remove odors pretty well. Also baking soda sprinkled inside the drawers (like in your fridge) could help.
