What better way to share our interest in vintage sewing machines than by hosting a "yard sale" (and show) featuring some of the best known makes and models from around the world?
Classic, vintage machines from USA, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Japan and Great Britain, including Singer, White, Necchi, Bernina, Elna, Pfaff, Juki, Morse, Brother and more!
Two collectors will be reducing their inventory, while at the same time sharing a few of their "gems" at this show and sale presented in the way of your typical yard, or garage sale... but with a difference: this will be dedicated exclusively to vintage sewing machines!
Save the date: Saturday, August 20th, 2011 in San Mateo, CA.
What is an Elna "Grasshopper"? Just how does a Necchi Wonder Wheel work? What was Brother turning out in the sixties? Why are Singer Featherweights so popular with collectors?
Have you always wanted to try a Bernina 830? How much does a Pfaff 130 weigh? (a lot).
Enjoy an afternoon with like-minded enthusiasts, looking, trying, learning – maybe heading home with the sewing machine of your dreams!
Do you have a vintage sewing machine gathering dust in your attic? Bring it along to find out just what you have, and just what would it take to bring it back to life.
