    Default Allsaints Spitalfields - sewing machine hoarders!

    Just found this image while surfing around:

    Hope it works!

    looks like the clothing store is decorating with vintage machines... hundreds of them. Stores are in the UK and also Boston, Washington, Chicago, etc.

    This link has amazing pictures. Worth a visit even if the clothing is "too cool" for quilters to wear.

    Way cooler than the metal security gates but I bet they work even better. Very cool picture but it makes me want to rescue them!

    OMG. I have this mental image of all of us vintage machine enthusiasts standing outside of the window drooling like Pavlov's dogs.
