    What are these machines and where did you get them? They are so cute. Are they vintage?

    I found them in an antique/junk mall. The 2 on the right are only 7" long. Oddly, they all work when plugged in. Surprised the heck out of me the first time I plugged one in & it ran. I would have thought they could be salesmen's samples but I wouldn't think they would work in that case. Two of them came in orig. boxes with instructions. Says it's intended to be a light weight portable sewing mach.

    The box for the white one, Stitch Mate, says "Sews Through Denim", Durable Locking Stiches, Uses Standard Needles & Metal Bobbins, Uses AC Adaptir ir 3 D Batteries".

    They are so cute & I will just display them in my sewing rm.

    Yes, they are all very cute. No, I don't plan to sew with them. Just display them & use them as conversation pcs. They're so unique.

    Oh no, this is not good news. LOL. I have 2 other teeny ones displayed on a shelf in my quilt rm. in my Ariz. home. I swore I wasn't going to collect them but who the heck could have passed up these 3 new ones. Ha.
    I can't get into any collections (tongue in cheek) since I know I have to sell my house in the next yr. or two & am already drowning in my beaut. pattern glass collection.

    Maybe you could send us a pix of your 50 machines. I'd love to see them.

    Well, I learned something new from you. Didn't know where to find albums. Searched all over then found all I had to do was click on your name.

    Good grief, I had no idea all of those little machines were made. Doesn't look like you have mine but you sure have a lot. What a wonderful collection. You could set them up at a county fair or something like that. That's blue ribbon material.

    Oh my gosh, how can they come up with that many diff. machines? I happened to go through the same "junk" store yest. where I found mine. Of course now I find myself looking for little machines again. I DON'T want to find
    anymore. LOL. All I saw was an old Singer in a case. I won't even let myself look at those. NO MORE COLLECTIONS. LOL.
