    Has anyone heard of a sewing machine from over 40 yrs ago with the name Humen? They were made in Edmonton, Alberta,Canada?

    I have never heard of them, but would be interested to see what one looks like.

    I saw pictures of one in Regina, Sask. I believe they are clone machines made in Japan for a company in |Edmonton who put the name "Humen"on them. I had a picture of it, a treadle, but I deleted it because I wasn't going to purchase it.

    Very cool demonstration of how a lockstitch is formed. :)

    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.
