Japanese made Sewmor, circa 1950's. Just got this today from Salvation Army. I still need to clean it up a bit but the motor is 1.5 amps so it runs really really fast. It has a nearly perfect straight stitch so I think I'm going to use it exclusively as a topstitch machine.

Yay! I love seeing other sewing machines!

My first one is a Singer Futura CE-150 that my dad bought for my every-birthday-and-christmas-for-the-rest-of-your-life present...

My second one is a White Speedylock 2500 serger that took me six months to save up for...

I also have another sewing machine but I don't have a picture of it because it's in storage but it's a Janome My excel 15s. I love that thing to death because my parents got it at a pawn shop for only $25 and it was my first machine and it worked so well!!!

Hello! My name is Megan and I'm addicted to fabric. Hey, isn't the first step to recovery admitting that you have a problem?

I love this!  I really have a thing for old Berninas, they are so nice to use.  Yours looks a lot like mine, except mine (a 600) is from 1961 and is a free arm machine.

Mine is misbehaving now though, tension issues that I can't seem to sort out, I think I'm going to have to take it to get it fixed  Angry

I use a Bernina Activa 135 Patchwork Edition (talk about spiffy!) and a Pfaff Hobbylock 4782 Serger. They're actually my mom's, but I use them way more than she does. I do own a little Europro, but it was a christmas gift my mom got me when I moved out, and it really wasn't meant for the heavy use I put it through, so it's kind of on it's last legs. I also have a RRRRREAAALLLY old Singer circa probably 1960's or -70's that I picked up next to the dumpster. There's nothing wrong with it except it weighs practically as much as a small car.

/sigh
You mean, like, made after I was born? Wink
Vintage is over 20 years old, it's not an Antique untill 50 (for machines and cars, furniture it has to be 100 years old).

Very nice find, really. Clean it up & use it Smiley
