    Searching for a Hespeler

    I went to a sewing machine museum yesterday. It is in New Hamburg Ontario. Over 300 machines and the owner shared a wealth of knowledge. I should have taken pictures but I was too mesmerized!
    Anyhow, he has a machine called a Hespeler. Made in Canada. He is trying to find out if anyone has one or knows of any in existence.

    Never heard of it but I'm betting someone on this board knows someone who knows someone, etc. Neat looking machine. I would Google and think that's what I'll do. I Google everything.

    I have been trying to make arrangements to go since last year but we have had lots of family 'senior' issues that has required our attention and energy. Things are slowly being resolved so hopefully in the Spring

    Is Miriam, Canadian Girl? ... if so, looks like you and I may be closer, as I am about 4 hrs to Windsor.
    A meet up in New Hamburg would be fun ... plus there are two LQS' there!

    Looks like CanadianGirl is with you in Windsor!

    The two of you will have to get Miriam to pick you up and the three of you come to NH!

    Found her thread ... what a hoot ...
    and to think none of you Canucks added to the Canadian portion of the menu with Poutine or Nanaimo Bars!

    Canadian Girl is not Miriam...I wish I knew that much about machines. I have spoken to Carl, the "curator" of Sew It Was and his quilting contacts in the area had wished to meet me. So, when you make arrangements, make sure you mention you are a quilter.
