Just a reminder that my collection of sewing machines will be on display and available for use at Space Craft Center's crafting event next week, June 12th, in Half Moon Bay, CA.
If you've ever wanted to see or try vintage machines, this will be a good time for that. I'll have the bulk of my collection there, as well as a few machines belonging to others that will be for sale.
I'll be answering questions about vintage sewing machine collecting, maintenance and repair. If you have an older machine gathering dust in the attic, this will be your chance to find out about its suitability for rescue, repair and use. Keep in mind that there are many who believe these older, all-metal machines are the ones worth keeping.
If you've been to Half Moon Bay, you know how quaint a town it is, perfect for strolling Main Street looking in windows, shopping for souvenirs and grabbing a bite to eat.
The event will be taking place at the Old Coastal Railroad Station that is now used as a community venue, and is just next to the historic Johnston House, "The White House on the Hill", an authentic saltbox house once owned by a pioneering family from the area. I believe that a special tour of the Johnston House will be offered to those attending Space Craft Center's event.
