Share Your Vintage Sewing Machine Story

Last week's blog post about vintage sewing machines and the stories they tell was/is the most popular post ever on this blog.  It's gone bonkers and since everyone is in love with the post I want to do a series on the machine's stories.  What do I need from all of you?  I need you to share your machines and stories with me.  After the jump I'll give you all the details on that.

So what do I need from you?  Emails!!!  You can email me at  In the email you'll need to include at least one picture, you can have up to 5 pictures, and the story behind the machine.

The stories need to include what type of sewing machine it is, i.e. Singer Featherweight or Necchi BU, the age of the machine, and what the machine was used for, i.e. making all of the kids clothes because we couldn't afford anything else.  If you are not the original owner you are welcome to include it's current story.  Not all of the stories start with the machine.  I don't know the story of my two Necchi machines but their current story is helping me build this blog.  You are welcome to share those stories as well.

When you send me the photo(s) and the story you are granting me permission to use those stories here.  I know that may sound silly but I have to include it here so I know that everyone read it.  The stories and photos will be shared here and on my social media.  When the post goes live I will send you an email so that you can check it.  I look forward to hearing from all of you.

  1. What a fun idea! Now you've kinda motivated me to look into the story behind mine.
