Vintage Machine Links

~Great Links for Vintage Machine Collectors~

With the moving of our lives to Virginia, most of my vintage machines have been rehomed to live with other quilters and machine enthusiasts as I downsize my life to fit our small cabin on the mountainside.

Some of my machines are living out their best life at Quiltville Inn, my quilt retreat dream come true.  I love to see quilters learning to treadle or use a vintage machine to sew on.

I've kept a couple of my favorite Featherweights of course, and the Singer 301 is my favorite hands down for piecing.  I have a couple of treadles in my home studio as well.

My Singer 201 is always ready for a binding job  - I keep the walking foot on it at all times.

I have a Rocketeer 500 in a cabinet that does the zig-zag job I need it to do when I need one - which isn't often.

But there aren't enough machines around to call it a "collection" any more.  How many machines can I sew on at one time?

I would rather see the machines being used, loved and kept in good working order than just be part of a "collection" and not making anything.

I did want to keep the library of links below accessible to all - there are so many valuable and knowledgeable sites I refer back to often.

The most used and most requested link is at the top - dating charts for Singer machines.  I refer to it often.

I hope you fellow vintage machine lovers may find these links useful.
