Vintage sewing machines

Our summer vacation this year was a quick trip out west to Port Townsend, Washington. We landed in Seattle and visited the Space Needle before heading north to Port Townsend, which is an old historic town. We went into an antique store one morning and they had several old sewing machines. I was surprised at the brands of the machines.

We’ve all heard of Singer………

but a Zenith???? I know they make TV’s…….

How about a Western Electric????

or an Elgin???


Those were all in the Antique store. Across the road there was an old garage with antique cars in it. We went inside to get a good look at the ’65 Mustang and there were 2 old sewing machines in there!

This one says German on the tag, guess that’s why I’ve never heard of it.

This one came from the ’60’s. Ever heard of a Morse???

It’s probably a good thing we were flying, or a couple of these might have came home with me!!

So, have you heard of any of these machines?

  1. I usually do not drop a bunch of remarks, however i did some searching and wound up here Vintage sewing machines | Always Quilts.
    And I do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Is
    it just me or does it appear like some of the comments look like they are coming from brain dead individuals?

    😛 And, if you are posting on other social sites, I’d like to
    follow anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of
    all of your public sites like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?

    I was just in that antique store and those machines are all still there. I ran across this posting because I was searching for information on these machines as well. As for the ones across the street, apparently the owner of that garage has a brother in town that owns a vintage sewing machine repair shop.
