Default Hello from NY

Hi, I'm John on Long Island. I'll confess right up front that I don't quilt, but I do sew.
I owned three older machines, two Pfaffs, a 230 and 332, and a Stradivaro Precision Deluxe, which is a badged Japanese machine from about 1962. I use these machines to makes covers and repair sails for my boat.

​Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Nothing like the old machines for heavy duty sewing.

Welcome from western NY

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

When I joined I didn't even sew. Just a wrench for my GF. My skills are improving.

Welcome from Kansas.

Hi and welcome from North Carolina! There are lots of folks here into vintage sewing machines, so you'll have much to talk about... maybe we might convince you to try your hand at quilting!!
