Still Stitching! Video Giveaway!

Have I ever got a great blog post this morning!

I am so excited about this streaming video and DVD I can hardly stand it.

And yes, I’ve watched it so I know!

Have you heard about STILL STITCHING?  It’s all about collectors and vintage sewing machines. 

In fact, I was contacted earlier in the year to participate.  They had asked if there was a time that crew could come out and interview me with my collection, but I just couldn’t do it.  My schedule was too cram packed with no wiggle room ((You who have followed me over the past year remember what it is like to have only one or two days turn around in between trips on opposite ends of the country!))

But I wanted to lend support to this very important project so I suggested that I help on the promotion end and do what I can to get word of this documentary out there.

Sewing machines are fascinating.  The passion for vintage machine collecting, and might I add USING is at an all time high.

Dig deep into the roots of the vintage machine, with stories told by their owners and caretakers and you might find yourself on the look out too!

Watch this trailer!

Now this is where WE come in!

Our machines are our best friends!
And we love the stories behind them!

This just in, a testimonial from Suzy!  She writes:

I wanted to say thank you for your blog post about “Still Stitching”. I rented the video for a month from Vimeo this morning and I enjoyed it from start to finish. I think it was most interesting to see that people from all different walks of life ... and amazingly enough – people that don’t even sew ... have such a love for these vintage machines. 
I feel like I’m part of a not-quite-so-secret club that feels joy by continuing the useful lives of these great machines. I’m off to sew on my Necchi Nora (or 201 or 301 ...) but once again THANK YOU!! 

Have a Wonderful Weekend,

1921 class 15 with Tiffany decals!

Remember how I adopted her HERE?

  1. Would love to watch this! Hope I win! Julianofamily@msn.com

  2. Thank you Bonnie for the code! Now I am definitely buying the DVD. And thank you for introducing me to this fine madness of collecting vintage machines. I have a 27 treadle, a 128 blackside that was my Mom's, and just rescued 3 99s, 3 301s, a 15 and a wonderful little New White Peerless hand crank. I can't keep them all but I can get them running again (I hope) and pass them on to someone that will appreciate them.

    Pat M. - great giveaway!

  5. So fun! I am well on my way to a severe vintage sewing machine addiction!

  6. Awesome! This is another perfect gift for my mom. She loved the sewing PJs for her bday. I think I'll get her the code and stream it while she's here at Xmas. Then she can also watch it once she gets home. Thanks again!

    I would really enjoy this because my son has now taken up this obsession of saving, collecting old machines. He has gifted me a couple that he repaired. He says he doesn't know if he enjoys the 'hunt' or bringing them back to usefulness. He also sews with them. He used to come home from school and sit in my sewing room and talk about everything while I worked on someone's clothing. I did alterations and sewing for years. Now I am a quilter. I still have a bit of a collection of lovely ladies that I enjoy using. Janice P

  8. So excited. Thank you Bonnie. I am a newbie here.

  21. This sounds like a fabulous documentary that will add to our collective consciousness about the history of sewing in our culture. I can't wait to see it!

  22. lots of thoughts here... the preponderance of people in the trailer were men!!! Isn't that interesting???

    I would LOVE to own a featherweight, just one... I DO NOT NEED ANOTHER SEWING MACHINE!!! really I have a "Baby Brother" for classes and retreats, a serger, a BIG brother for embroidery and my workhorse Janome for most everyday work... There's my mom's old singer out in the shed, so heavy and the key is missing so i can't open it. Sigh... love all our posts, thoughts and etceteras... Thanks, Bonnie, for the opportunity... cwhitcher@roadrunner.com

  23. I was @ The Charlton Sewing Center when they filmed Cathy Racine"s segment. Would love to see the whole video. Thanks for the opportunity Bonnie.. Cathy is a genius when it comes to vintage machines.

    Bonnie, the DVD would be a great treasure!
    When I showed my hubby a sampling of your machines , his reply to me was "just because you have a few like hers you don't need to try and compete with her, you need to stop at this point". Imagine me telling him no moe drills or drill bits, assorted length dry wall (self tapping) screws, wrenches, etc, etc.
    thank you to a very generous soul.

    Well, you've convinced me now to have my old singer repaired. I bought it in 1973 and the only problem is with the tension release. I know it can be fixed Will need a good cleaning too.

  30. I loved the story on your about the lady in (I think Idaho) who mounted a hand-crank in her GPS-driven combine so that she could sew while the machine made its way down the long rows.She only had to turn the machine at the end of the rows.

  31. Thank for the code for the discount. Looks like a great DVD

  36. I rescued a 1974 White sewing machine from my local thrift store. She is Turquoise & white and sews beautifully. She also came with her own cabinet and the paper work from the original owner. I couldn't pass her up at the awesome price of $12.50. Love to learn about the vintage machines. Linda craftylady65@hotmail.com
