For me they are Machines that Sew, not Sewing Machines.
Soon after I began making shoes I realized that I had to learn to sew leather.
The next question then was what type of machine.
As a result I have another hobby... Vintage sewing machines.

Singer 338 (1965)
Got the 338 at a garage sale, the case was trashed but the machine works fine.
Has the very familiar baby blue color from the 60's
Also has a unique bobbin winding mechanism that is completely hidden, very modern!
I recently took it to play with and it really is a nice little sewer.
