My Grandma has a singer treadle machine. In her house. I want to steal it when she dies...no one else will want it. I want it.

However I learnt to sew on a 1975 Husqvarna 2000. which belongs to my mother. It was like the best and still is awesome.

The parentals bought me a burnette 330 from the sunday markets. for christmas.  Me loves it. Its so quiet and smooth. but has a glitch and if you turn the wheel past the zigzag stitch width setting it stuffs up the whole stitch thing and you have to fiddle with it until its better...so i drew on it.
It has nice holes for feet keeping.

Mother also has a pfaff hobby lock from the early 80's which i like to use. i like overlocker/serger things. they make edges nice.

hehe.
I shall take pictures one day. They are lined up next to each other near a wall in our lounge room.
its cute.

This one of my "babies" (and my first attempt at putting an image in a post.) I use them (I have 2) for my work and have recently started making things for "fun & profit" with them. I love combining technology w/ traditional needle arts - very cool Smiley

I have three. Maybe some of you can help me out with my prettiest here-


My awesome boyfriend gave it to me for X-Mas, and I really know nothing about it. I was just able to look at it really quick last time i was over; I dont offically get it until hes got some sort of power working. (Lets hope he doesnt kill it)



The desk opens up, so it can be stored inside of it. And its got a knee control.. thing.


Then I have a Singer, its a couple years old, and it throws fits, but I love it cause its my first. I started painting it gold, and its got some random things on it.



Then I just got this serger today. I havent begun to fathom how to do anything with it, lol. Ive been too spazztic over my other present (drawing tablet) to really look into it yet. But after looking at Gardenofdaisies machine right there maybe i shouldnt be so overwelmed.

Wow, Madness323, your oldest sewing machine looks exactly like the one I use (which is actually my Mom's).  I think it might be from the 30's but I don't really know anything else about it...

It is a very common machine.  I don't know exactly what year it was made but there are places where you can find out from the serial number.  It is a very good basic machine that is prized by quilters.

My mom has the same machine as the first one.  It has a gorgous stitch.  It is sometimes a bit of a pain since there is no reverse and only straight stitch, but you really can't beat the old machines.

What a fun thread!  Glad to see others with vintage machines here.


That's the same machine my mom has! Oh, I remember watching her sew for HOURS when I was younger.

I don't have any pictures of my machine on this computer, but I'll post one whenever I get home.

This is such a cool thread. I browsed through all the pictures and didn't find one like mine so I thought I'd post it here. It's actually my mom's machine but its the only one we have so I use it too. It's an industrial machine we bought second hand and it probably came from one of the Chinese clothing factories in nyc. It's a Singer 591 lockstitch and it can only sew straight lines. I can't adjust anything and it has no cool features but I love it anyway.


Here's a pic of it with the table it came with. Excuse the mess.. The pedal is attached to the table as is everything else, looks like a foot rest. The red rubber thingy under the table lifts the sewing foot, you need to push it with your knee. The thread holders are at the right, raised from the table and the bobbin (not sure if that's the name, it's small and holds the bottom thread) is under the table. The circular black thing to the right is attached to the engine and you need to turn that to lift the needle. The attached light is very useful.  Other then that I don't know anything else about this machine.  Smiley oh right, the on/off buttons are at the right corner of the table. If you're wondering about the uneven wall and crappy floor it's because that's my basement and it's unfinished. There's nowhere else to stick this thing.
