Default They have car shows, why can't we have vintage sewing machine shows?

Is there such a thing?? Where vintage sewing machine owners and enthusiasts from all over the country get together, show off their favorite machines??

I WOULD GO!!! Lol. Spend the day looking at everyone's vintage machines, talking to their owners, listening to their stories?? Heck yea I would go!!! Maybe even take classes??? Maybe from some of you right here on this board????? Heck yea I would go!!

There must be such a thing.

Not only could you have classes on how to use them, but you could have classes on how to clean, oil and repair them. Oh and maybe an appraiser like roadshow!! That would be fun!!

Amelia, I would be in seventh heaven honestly I would. I would take every class that I could possibly take. I learn so much better when someone shows me.

ISMACS had a get together a few years ago. Not sure what it involved (vendors? auction? seminars?). If your a member, contact them and see if you can help arrange it (I'm sure they would love a volunteer).
