A great looking machine. Until a few years ago I had never known that there was a brand name machine called Domestic. The term “domestic” has been used for quite some time too refer to the machines regular sewers/quilters/ etc. used to differentiate them from long arm machines (or now mid-arm also). Good old mechanical sewing machines are always better in many way to the whiz bang machines of today (but I do love them, too!!!!). I have a collection of vintage Singer Sewing Machines plus my two leer r Pfaff machines and they sew so well. I am thinking I need to put a Domestic machine on my list of ones to get👍👍😀😀😀

Since I’m a naturally curious person, I checked out the Domestic branded machines online. It seems like they made really good machines from about 1866 and that Singer an Howe did a lot of copying the Domestic stlyling and that the Domestic machines were actually better and sold the the two mentioned above. Unfortunately, I goofed and lost the article but I want to go find it again to share on my small quilt guild’s newsletter. II did just put in the search area “domestic branded sewing machines”. When I find it again I’ll post the link.

Thanks,
