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 99 - 24 (1947)
Found this little gem at an estate sale during the 1/2 off period!
What's really cool is that it had all the original accessories and the original sales receipt!
It had been in that house since it was purchased in 1947 for $90; a top of the line treat for the misses back then. Imagine just after the war a home maker, making a home.
