Vintage Sewing Machines

I have been collecting vintage sewing machines for quite a few years. 
Packratting runs deep in my genes. As with many old things, these don't all work 100%. 

My  most recent project has been a Coronado Select-o-matic.

Tell me that doesn't look like a car from the 50's!

Right now, it doesn't sew yet. The hand wheel doesn't move the needle. 
I hope to get it working soon.

Here are some of my other vintage sewing machines.
All of these, as well as the Coronado, were made by Brother.

Meet the Electro Grand:

Atlas Deluxe

This is a bad photo, but this one is actually Brother branded.

I also have a lovely hundred year old treadle that does function fully.
And maybe another couple of portable machines from the 50's to 70's.

If you sew, what is your favorite sewing machine?

  1. Very pretty machines! Thanks for sharing the link back to your blog with me! I hope you get your Coronado working - I love sewing on my Wizard like it. =)
