    Calanda michine

    I found a vintage Calanda machine today in a beautiful cabinet. can anyone help me with information on the machine? It appears to be made in Switzerland prior to Pfaff taking over the corporation. i am curious if I can find an instruction book or parts.

    How interesting - I'm a fan of old Pfaffs, but have never heard of a Calanda sewing machine.

    Would love to see a photo?

    Caroline- I found this one too. The one I'm interested in is much older than the one Googled.

    I found out a lot about "calanda"....towns, mountains, and all kinds of things in Europe, but nothing about the sewing machine! Lol

    I would guess it was made by a German manufacturer who thought "Calanda" was a nice name for a sewing machine. Picture is needed and even then the German or European makers can be tough to ID.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
